Catalyst Scholarship Application

The Catalyst Scholarship is intended to support the education of a full-time student majoring in social work who shows promise as a strong catalyst for change. This scholarship gives preference to students whose personal characteristics reflect historically underrepresented populations in the profession, such as (but not limited to) diversity in race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, disability, language, socioeconomic status, national origin, age, faith, or culture.

Students must meet these qualifications:  

  • Admitted to the social work program
  • 3.0 cumulative grade point average at Grand View
  • Financial need as indicated by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

Applicants must submit responses to questions (see form below) indicating how they see themselves as catalysts for change, both as students and as future social workers. 

Application deadline: March 15
