  • How did the financial aid program develop for Master of Social Work (MSW) students specializing in public child welfare?

*In 1990, the deans and directors of California’s graduate schools of social work and the County Welfare Directors Association collaborated to create the California Social Work Education Center (CalSWEC).

*CalSWEC’s goal was to improve the education and training of social workers for the publicly supported social services.

*In 1992, CalSWEC entered into a contract with the California Department of Social Services to develop the MSW Title IV-E Stipend Program to prepare students for careers in public child welfare.
