The NASW Foundation is pleased to announce Social Work HEALS, a collaborative endeavor of the National Association of Social Workers Foundation and the Council on Social Work Education to increase funding for the Jane B. Aron Doctoral Fellowship and the Verne LaMarr Lyons Memorial MSW Scholarships. 

The online application for the Aron Fellowship Award will be temporarily placed on hold while further planning takes place.

 

2015-2016 Recipients will be announced in June 2015.  The first award installment will be disbursed in September 2015. 

NASW Foundation scholarships and fellowships help to provide the financial resources to support students pursuing a variety of social work specialties. 

The Jane B. Aron Doctoral Fellowship provides partial support to social work doctoral candidates who are engaged in dissertation research in health care policy and practice.  The fellowship program was established in 1987 as a tribute to Jane Aron, who was a leader in health care policy and education. 

With a generous grant from the New York Community Trust Robert and Ellen Popper Scholarship Fund, the NASW Foundation is pleased to announce SOCIAL WORK HEALS, a collaborative endeavor of the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) and the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE). This grant will increase the annual funding from one fellowship in the amount of $4,000 to one fellowship in the amount of $15,625 (historically the Aron Fellowship has been awarded based on projected annual earnings and contributions). The increased funding will raise the prestige/stature of the Aron Fellowship and will allow for leadership development opportunities. 

The Eileen Blackey Doctoral Fellowship provides partial support to social work doctoral candidates who are engaged in dissertation research in welfare policy and practice. The fellowship program was established in 1987 as a tribute to Eileen Blackey, who was a pioneer in the planning and use of staff development programs in public welfare agencies and the U.S. Veterans Administration. 

The Consuelo W. Gosnell Memorial Scholarship is a monetary grant awarded to master's degree candidates in social work who have demonstrated a commitment to working with, or who have a special affinity with, American Indian/Alaska Native and Hispanic/Latino populations, or in public and voluntary nonprofit agency settings.  The Gosnell Scholarship was established through a bequest of Consuelo Gosnell, a social work practitioner who was a champion of civil and human rights and worked diligently to ameliorate conditions for critically under-served American Indians and Latinos in the Southwest. 

The Verne LaMarr Lyons Scholarship is a monetary grant awarded to a master's degree candidate in social work who demonstrates an interest in, or has experience with, health/mental health practice and a commitment to working in African American communities.  The scholarship is a memorial to social worker Verne LaMarr Lyons, who committed his life to increasing awareness of pernicious health concerns affecting African American such as insufficient prenatal care, infant mortality, AIDS, cirrhosis, and general life expectancy. 

With a generous grant from the New York Community Trust Robert and Ellen Popper Scholarship Fund, the NASW Foundation is pleased to announce SOCIAL WORK HEALS, a collaborative endeavor of the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) and the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE). This grant will increase the annual funding from 4 scholarships in the amount of $4,150 each to 4 scholarships in the amount of $5,500 each. (historically the Lyons Scholarships have been awarded based on projected annual earnings and contributions). The increased funding will raise the prestige/stature of the Lyons Scholarships and will allow for leadership development opportunities. 

NASW Foundation Research Grants provide opportunities for NASW chapters to conduct pilot research projects targeted to a specific emerging issue.  (NASW Chapters only may apply) 

The Ruth Fizdale Chapter Research Program underwrites research projects that link practice and policy issues with relevant social issues. Created in 1987 by Dr. Helen Rehr and other friends of Ruth Fizdale to honor her contributions to social work, the fund is intended to underwrite studies related to people with social needs, and to facilitate effective service delivery.  The program provides opportunities for NASW chapters to conduct pilot research projects targeted to a specific emerging issue.  These pilot projects then may serve as cornerstones for developing more comprehensive research projects.
