BASW Title IV-E Child Welfare Training Program
The IV-E stipends provide one year of support in the amount of $15,000 for students in the Senior Year of the Full-Time BASW Program. To receive this stipend, students must have applied and been accepted into the Title IV-E BASW program.
- Senior year field placements must be in California County Child Welfare Agencies.
- Students sign a contact agreeing to pay back this award by securing employment in a California County Department of Child Welfare Services within six months of graduation. They must complete one year of full-time, continuous employment to "pay back" the full-time stipend. Monetary payback is only required when appropriate and/or approved employment is not obtained.
- Students who are DSS/CDSS or CWS employees on educational leave must return to work in their home county upon graduation.
Students must be enrolled in the California State University, Chico, School of Social Work to be eligible to apply for the BASW Title IV-E Program. The number of stipends is limited. Applications must demonstrate commitment to public child welfare. Fluency in a high demand language is given priority.
An awards committee, made up of representatives of the CSU, School of Social Work, and representatives of public child welfare agencies from counties surrounding the University, will review all applications and finalize selection of candidates to whom the award will be offered.
