The following broad eligibility requirements apply:

  • MSW students in accredited social work or social welfare programs in California are eligible to submit proposals. They do not have to be a CalSWEC Title IV-E Child Welfare or Mental Health Program stipend recipient to apply.
  • Proposals may be submitted by individual students or by students working together in teams. Any award for a team research project will be shared by the team members.
