Number One Priority: Student Scholarships Heading link


Student Scholarships are our Number 1 Campaign Priority.
Financial support for students helps ensure that they can pursue their graduate education unburdened by financial concerns, focusing instead on mastering the knowledge and skills they will carry forward to help transform marginalized communities.

Your gift to JACSW scholarship funds enables our students’ futures as social work practitioners who can lead the advancement of social and racial justice, and it lights the way to a more just and equitable future.
