School of Social Work Annual Student Scholarship Fund
Last year, Springfield College School of Social Work celebrated its twenty-fifth anniversary as a Council on Social Work Education-accredited MSW program. As part of the 25th commemorative year, the School established the School of Social Work Annual Student Scholarship Fund. We invite you to make a gift to the newly established fund which will provide support for students of the School.
If we didn't have the field of social work, we would need to invent it. And then we would have to invent the many partner-training institutes and agencies that help bring to life the study of social work practice in the field in pursuit of a new generation of social work practitioners prepared to meet the increasing social, emotional, and health demands of a rapidly changing world. The need for a highly trained professional corps has never been greater, and Springfield College School of Social Work is in a strong position to meet this need through its classroom focus on advanced generalist practice and its broad ranging relationships with service agencies that address human issues across the lifespan.
