The University of Washington at Tacoma, School of Social Work and Criminal Justice invites MSW students beginning their foundation or advanced practicum placement in June 2022 to apply for the Simon Family Endowment MSW Autism Fellowship. The Simon Family Endowment recognizes and supports graduate social work students as future professional providers of lifelong care for adult individuals diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or an Intellectual Disability.
Because there is a dire need in the South Sound for such providers, the objective of the University of Washington Tacoma Simon Family Endowment is to offer Master of Social Work Fellowships and fieldwork practicum opportunities in agencies serving autistic or intellectually disabled adults.
Graduate social work students selected for the Simon Family Endowment Autism Fellowship are awarded up to $2,850 – $3,300 per year (subject to the availability of funds). The total funds awarded will be divided up each quarter beginning summer, June 2022 thru spring, March 2023.
The application for the Simon Family Endowment MSW Fellowship will be made available on April 1, 2022, and the deadline for applying is May 20, 2022. To apply or for more information contact Dr. Ronnie San Nicolas (firstname.lastname@example.org), Simon Family Endowment MSW Autism Field Education Coordinator.
