January, 2023 – Inaugural GCSW Doctoral Awardees and Honorably Mentions have been announced. Help us celebrate this diverse group of DSW and PhD students who are working to address one or more of the Grand Challenges for Social Work!
A $100,000 grant to the Grand Challenges for Social Work (GCSW) from The New York Community Trust will expand the corps of social workers with doctoral degrees and build their commitment to careers tackling some of society’s biggest challenges. The grant will permit GCSW to provide $3,000 stipends to support doctoral students’ research in ways that better connect their scholarly work to the people and communities they are studying. During the next two years, the fellowships will enable these graduate students to turn their research findings into proposals for policy and practice changes addressing one or more of society’s 13 biggest challenges.
