Additional Funding Opportunities
Federal Public Child Welfare Training Grant:
The School offers a limited number of public child welfare training grants. These grants provide a stipend, books and supplies funds, full tuition costs, and mileage to and from field sites. Interested students may apply for the Title IV-E training program once admission to the M.S.W. Program (Full-Time Program or Part-Time Program) or B.S.W. Program is confirmed. Upon graduation, trainees agree to accept employment with the State of Wisconsin in the area of public child welfare for a period of time equal to the amount of time they receive funding.
