Masters in Social Work Scholarships and Fellowships

Master of Social Work Scholarships and Fellowships

There are a number of endowed scholarships for social work students and unlike many academic areas, the graduate degree enjoys as much support as the undergraduate because the MSW is the credential that is truly necessary for a full career in the field. Social work scholarships may be found at many of the urban universities like Columbia or New York University because generations of social workers have come out of those schools and been honored for their achievements by endowed scholarships. There are a few national organizations that provide scholarship support in the social services area and there are a number of regional organizations who have sponsored scholarships at local universities.

  • National Association of Social Workers administers five scholarship programs for MSW and doctoral candidates in social work. Two of the MSW scholarships are for minority students, one designated for an African American MSW candidate and the other for a student of Hispanic descent. The awards for these two programs are $2,500 each. There is also a scholarship for a research project at the master's level.
  • Washington University The school is selective about the MSW applicants, as the #1 school can afford to be, but if you are accepted you are eligible for one of over 200 scholarships awarded annually by the school to its own students.
  • American Board of Examiners in Clinical Social Work administers the Judith Holm Memorial Student Awards which are presented to applicants who submit a research paper produced in a MSW program. Applicants must be enrolled in their second year and have completed the research as part of their current academic efforts. The awards are $2,000 each.
  • Alpha Kappa Alpha Educational Advancement Foundation is the scholarship arm of the AKA Sorority, a one hundred year old organization of African American women. The Foundation has scholarship programs for undergraduate and graduate students in two categories. There is a competitive scholarship program based on merit, and a program for graduate students based on need.
  • Leopold Schepp Foundation is a New York organization in existence since 1925 that provides scholarships to undergraduate and graduate students who can demonstrate need. The awards range up to $8,500 and are based on academic merit as demonstrated by transcripts and recommendations from the student's university. The Foundation was originally established to help young men finish high school who could not afford not to work. It was later converted to a college scholarship program.
