School of Social Work Annual Student Scholarship Fund
Last year, Springfield College School of Social Work celebrated its twenty-fifth anniversary as a Council on Social Work Education-accredited MSW program. As part of the 25th commemorative year, the School established the School of Social Work Annual Student Scholarship Fund. We invite you to make a gift to the newly established fund which will provide support for students of the School.
Children arrive in the world with an incredibly strong 'push' to engage and explore their environments. However, obstacles can arise that prevent this natural, lively engagement. Social workers in the fields of child welfare and children's mental health help parents and caregivers to identify such obstacles, remove them, and clear the path for the child to socialize, explore, and learn.
