Social Work Graduate Fellowships

Earn your Master of Social Work and reduce your tuition with a graduate fellowship. 

Social Work Fellowship Process

The fellowship selection/appointment process for the Master of Social Work program is as follows:

  1. You may apply for the fellowship by indicating on your admission application that you are interested in a fellowship and submitting your fellowship essay and application for priority consideration. (Late applications may be considered if fellowships remain available.)
  2. You will be notified of your status in the process within five business days of receipt of you application.
  3. If you are eligible, you will receive a list of all available fellowships and you will list your preferences in order of priority. These will be used to assign interviews to students.
  4. You will participate in virtual interviews between February 14-March 4, 2022.
  5. You will be notified if you have received a fellowship offer by March 31, 2022.
  6. You will have until April 15, 2022, to accept or decline the fellowship.

Please note:

  • Participation in the fellowship placement process is NOT a guarantee of a fellowship.
  • Eligible MSW students may apply for the fellowship for the first year of their two-year program only; in the second year, the program requires a significant time commitment at a clinical placement, and thus taking on a fellowship in the second year is not permitted. The tuition award is thus made only for the first year of the program.
  • Duties and tasks are negotiated between the fellowship’s supervisor and the Director of MSW Field Education.
