Steve Hicks School Funding
The Steve Hicks School administers a limited number of undergraduate and graduate fellowships and scholarships that are awarded on the basis of academic achievement, professional potential and need.
We encourage you to check with your advisor on how to be considered for Steve Hicks School fellowships and scholarships.
Applications are accepted each April and May for consideration for the next academic year. Students must have been accepted into the Practice Sequence to be considered. Awards are primarily given to BSW students going into their final year and completing field internships. Students will be notified about scholarship decisions in the summer following scholarship application. All applications must be received by 5:00pm on the last business day of May.
To be considered for Steve Hicks School fellowships, scholarships and employment, MSSW students must have an updated financial support application (FSA) on file.
BSW and MSSW students are also eligible for field-related programs that offer student awards. Learn more about these programs.

While many of the Steve Hicks School awards don’t have restrictions, some are for students with interest in specific topics or areas or work. Below is a sample of general and topic-specific awards available to BSW, MSSW and PhD students. Please ask your social work advisor how to be considered for these awards.
