School of Social Work – Annual Student Scholarship Fund
This year, Springfield College School of Social Work is celebrating its twenty-fifth anniversary as a Council on Social Work Education-accredited MSW program. During this commemorative year we invite you to make a gift to the newly established School of Social Work Annual Student Scholarship Fund.
We have over 1,200 MSW alumni who are keenly aware of how our mission is interwoven with the Springfield College Humanics mission of educating the whole person – spirit, mind, and body – for leadership in service to others. The field of social work is a deeply rewarding one and reflects the compassion and caring of the dedicated practitioners who are vital in order for the profession to succeed. Every day we deal with the principles of economic and social justice, dignity, and human rights.
Currently, more than 350 students are enrolled in the full-time weekday program and part-time weekend program in both Springfield and Worcester. You likely know from your personal experience the challenges of financing graduate education. More than 90 percent of SCSSW students finance their education through loans. Financial aid scholarships are one important tool to help students offset the costs of graduate education. Your gift can be made to the School of Social Work Annual Scholarship Fund, and will provide immediate financial aid support for students of the School. The fund will be administered by the School of Social Work Scholarship Committee, which will be composed of faculty members who will review student applications.
If you prefer, you can choose to give to the Springfield College Fund, much of which is used to support student financial aid. This is especially important since each year, on average, 90 percent of the College’s undergraduate students receive financial assistance, allowing students to realize their educational and career goals. The Springfield College Fund also helps support other critical areas, such as hands-on research opportunities for students with faculty members who are leaders in their fields, as well as student special interest clubs and organizations.
Please know that your gift to Springfield College, no matter the amount, is greatly appreciated and will make a significant difference for our students. Moreover, your generosity will have a positive impact on our ability to fulfill our mission. Please make your online gift today, or by calling the Office of Development at (800) 622-6072 or (413) 748-3124. If you have any questions, please feel welcome to contact the School of Social Work at (413) 748-3057.
Thank you for considering making a gift this year.
