Social Work HEALS Guidelines
Doctoral Fellows will be expected to participate in an orientation, periodic support calls, and to attend related program events at the CSWE Annual Program Meeting (APM), Society for Social Work & Research or NASW National Conference. The fellows may be asked to present about their work at the APM or NASW conference. As part of the award, the recipient will be expected to submit a final dissertation to the NASW Foundation upon completion.
In 2019-2020, each fellowship (including the Jane B. Aron Fellowship) will be awarded in the amount of $17,900. A total of $15,500 will be disbursed directly to the recipient's university. An additional $2,400 will be earmarked for conference attendance and participation and leadership development. Expenses for conferences and professional development must be approved through the NASW Foundation and funds will not be distributed directly to the recipient. Fellowships are awarded for one academic year, to begin in September 2019, and will be disbursed in two installments (September and January).
