Introduction
This guide is designed to help social work students at all academic levels find financial aid
assistance to achieve their educational goals. Included in this guide are
scholarship descriptions with contact information, student loan repayment
and loan forgiveness programs, recent information regarding loan options for
those pursuing a social service profession, listings of internet scholarship
search engines, and school contact information for assistance with financial
aid.
In developing this guide, we have focused on awards that are social work
specific as well as awards that promote social work values. Because it is
impossible to include every available scholarship, we encourage you to explore other
scholarship possibilities by talking with your school financial aid office, your academic advisor,
and using other Internet resources.
If you need further assistance in finding financial aid, feel free to contact us at the Chapter
office. We are always glad to help you.
Good Luck!
