Naming Term or Endowed Scholarships/ Fellowships

Tuition assistance in the form of named term and endowed scholarships/fellowships* is a major SP2 priority. These gifts may be designated for students of merit in any of the School’s three master’s degree programs or the Doctorate in Clinical Social Work (the PhD in Social Welfare has a separate financial support structure). Donors may name scholarships/fellowships in perpetuity for a minimum investment of $150,000. Term scholarships may be established with a minimum investment of $25,000.

* “scholarship/fellowship” may be used interchangeably
