Masters in Social Work Catalyst Scholarship

The Masters in Social Work Catalyst Scholarship is intended to support the education of a graduate student in the Masters of 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:  

  • Admission to the MSW program
  • 3.0 cumulative GPA in the MSW program
  • Completion of at least one semester in the MSW program
  • 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.
