Diversity Scholarship

The Social Work Diversity scholarship is an annual award designed to support the education of a Belmont Social Work major and contribute to the continued development of a diverse community of learners.

The award was first distributed in the academic year 2014-2015, and will be an annual award in coming years. The award is made possible due to the donations of alumni and other friends of the department who are committed to increasing diversity and awareness of diversity.

Students who are interested in seeking the award will apply in the fall semester of each academic year. The application consists of a few brief demographic questions and an essay regarding the student's understanding of the importance of diversity in our profession.

The application for the award and the date it is due are released by October of each academic year. In accordance with university policy, we are unable to award the scholarship to a University College student.
