The Project/Challenge

This project supports a merit-based scholarship established in 2016 for Bachelor of Social Work and Master of Social Work students who are preparing for excellence as professionals and leaders in social work practice.

Who We Are

The USF School of Social Work prepares graduates to achieve excellence as professionals and leaders in social work practice, research and education, in addition to maintaining a commitment to promoting social and economic justice, human rights, human dignity, scientific inquiry, and sustainable human and community well-being for all. Social workers provide leadership, advocacy and service related to social justice and the development of new social structures to address important issues such as racism, mental health, trauma and poverty.

The Impact

Our students often have multiple responsibilities requiring them to work while in school. Scholarships help ease the financial and personal stressors that can become barriers to graduation and meeting the increasing demand for skilled social workers in Florida.  

USF social work students have an estimated collective impact value of over $5 million to the community.

Now more than ever, we must educate and train professional social workers to meet the vast needs of vulnerable populations in our communities.

 

What Your Gifts Will Do

Social workers help relieve people's suffering, fight for social justice, and improve lives and communities. Supporting this scholarship will help students who have dedicated their lives to these causes. We award scholarships to two Bachelor of Social Work students and two Master of Social Work students each year. 

This project supports a merit-based scholarship established in 2016 for Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) and Master of Social Work (MSW) students who are preparing for excellence as professionals and leaders in social work practice.
