Undergraduate Scholarships for Eligible BSW/MSW Students

Rewarding the best and brightest

Scholarships help students earn their degrees and allow them to focus on their academics rather than their finances. They also reward students for their academic achievements. Scholarships recognize undergraduate students of the highest caliber and exist in perpetuity thanks to generous donors of the college.

Several scholarships are available to juniors in advanced standing (must currently be in SW 4150 and SW 4160 classes) at the Logan campus. Applications are due in March. The scholarships are awarded near the end of spring semester and will be applied the following fall of their senior year. Applicants should submit only one scholarship application. Announcement on the scholarship will be made in class and application forms would be made available at that point for the Logan BSW juniors.
