Students with disabilities often do not receive enough support and accommodations throughout their educational journey. Going through school without these supports in place can be isolating and can make higher education seem unappealing. Students deserve a higher education experience and a social work profession that is truly accessible.

This scholarship aims to contribute financially to reducing barriers for students with disabilities who are pursuing social work education.

Any high school, undergraduate, or graduate student who has a disability or is chronically ill or neurodivergent may apply for this scholarship if they’re pursuing social work. Graduates of accredited social work programs are also encouraged to apply, as funds can be used towards student loan payments.

To apply, tell us about yourself and what you hope to focus your social work career on and your experiences with disability, chronic illness and/or neurodivergence will impact or inform your social work career.
