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 2023 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 (subject to the availability of funds) up to $6,000 per year. The total funds awarded will be divided up each quarter beginning in June 2024 through March 2025 (for 1st year Fellows) and June 2025 (for 2nd year Fellows). SFE Autism MSW Fellows are required to be placed in a field instruction agency focused on serving clients with neurodevelopmental disabilities.
The deadline for applying for the Simon Family Endowment Autism MSW Fellowship is May 10, 2024. For more information contact Dr. Ronnie San Nicolas (Email: email@example.com).
