NASW Foundation fellowships help provide the financial resources to support students pursuing a variety of social work specialties. Foundation fellowships include the Eileen Blackey Doctoral Fellowship and the Jane B. Aron Doctoral Fellowship. The Aron Fellowship is currently supplemented by, and is part of, the Social Work HEALS program, which was funded in 2014 by a generous five-year grant from the New York Community Trust Robert and Ellen Popper Scholarship Fund.
The Foundation is pleased to administer this five-year collaborative endeavor of NASW and the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE). A total of five Social Work HEALS Doctoral Fellowships will be awarded each year during the anticipated five year funding period along with one Jane B. Aron Doctoral Fellowship and four Verne LaMarr Lyons Memorial MSW Scholarships, which are also currently supplemented and administered through Social Work HEALS.
