Child Welfare Stipends
The school offers stipends to students who wish to pursue a career in Child Protective Services under the Title IV-E Stipend Program in partnership with the Children Youth and Families Department (CYFD). Students awarded a stipend must conduct their field practicum with an office of the Children Youth and Families Department for one academic year. The average stipend amount for a full-time student is $11,000 per academic year. The amount is pro-rated for part-time program students. Stipend amounts are subject to change.
Upon completion of the MSW program, stipend recipients must work for CYFD for a period of 18 months for each academic year a stipend is received. Stipend application information is provided to all students at the time of notification of admission. Applications can also be downloaded from the School of Social Work website. The application deadline is June 1 for the following academic school year. Students admitted after the June 1 deadline are not eligible to apply for a CYFD stipend until the following year.
