UMD Seeks Clinical Scholar Applications!!
Applicants are being sought for UMD’s 2014-15 Clinical Scholars Program (CSP). UMD was one of very few social work programs selected to provide federal Mental and Behavioral Training Grants to MSW students. Students in the Clinical Scholars Program (CSP) are awarded $10,000 for each required field placement and are required to take clinically focused courses and interdisciplinary training. Interested applicants are encouraged to apply this year, as it may be the last year for scholarships to be available. Whether or not you are selected to receive a scholarship, you can focus your MSW program in the area of clinical practice.
You must be accepted into the UMD MSW program prior to applying for the Clinical Scholarship.
