Healthcare Scholarship: Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) Scholars Program

Once you graduate from a social work program, your learning and education don’t end. Social work is a field in which discoveries, research and learning are perpetually ongoing – new discoveries in human development and the lifespan, gerontology, community development and any new discovery or development that touches on the well being of individuals and the community. The Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) knows that scholarly research on these new discoveries helps society. The Council on Social Work Education created the CSWE Scholars Program to assist doctoral students and university faculty members to carry out research projects or doctoral dissertations.

Scholarship Overview

The Scholars Program is intended for senior scholars, who are school faculty members or junior scholars writing their dissertations to continue and finish their research. If you fall into one of these groups and you have an idea for a research project, the main criteria for acceptance is that it is an initiative that is of interest to you and to CSWE. If CSWE is pursuing study on the effects of community-wide discrimination on a poverty-stricken community, for instance, and this is an initiative you are pursuing, your application is more likely to be funded. When you fill out your Scholars Program application, your proposed research must be aligned with CSWE’s current and ongoing research priorities.

Scholarship Requirements

Since this scholarship is awarded to postdoctorate students and faculty members, awarded funds are required to be spent on the research. If you have plans to return to school and you are applying for the Scholars Program, any awarded dollars cannot go towards tuition, books or school fees. If you are already in school, your award is required to go towards your doctoral dissertation research.

One question on the application form asks you if you are willing to relocate temporarily to Alexandria, Virginia. This is not a set requirement. If you can’t move to Virginia, this will not prevent you from receiving an award.

Scholarship Deadline

This program does not have a set annual deadline. Because it is intended for doctoral students of social work and social work faculty members, incoming applications are accepted throughout the year on a rolling basis.

Scholarship Amount

The amount of your scholarship award will depend on your proposed research and the depth of your study. If you are applying for a sabbatical, this program may be able to assist with a small amount of financial support, including a cost-of-living stipend.
