All admitted applicants are considered for Seattle University Scholarships for Graduate Programs based upon a holistic review of all information received in the application process and available funding. Awards are renewable for multi-year programs based upon satisfactory progress toward degree completion. Scholarship amounts are based upon full-time enrollment of minimally 6 quarter credits per term. Students taking less than 6 quarter credits will have their award amount pro-rated accordingly.
Seattle University Scholarships for Graduate Programs are called Equity Scholarships.
To establish a diverse and equitable student population in the MSW program, the SU MSW program offers scholarships that are distributed based on these principles. We offer an Equity in Distribution Scholarship to support students for whom financial need would extend beyond any eligible financial aid provided through the FAFSA filing, which would present a major barrier to pursuing graduate education. To increase the number of clinical social workers of color, we also offer an Equity in Representation Scholarship to provide financial support to students of color. Students may qualify for one or both scholarships based on eligibility.
Seattle University's MSW Program offers an endowed scholarship created by Lee Scheingold, MA, MSW and Bill Etnyre, MSW, PhD. The Etnyre Scheingold Clinical Social Work Endowed Scholarship supports students who are pursuing their MSW education and are dedicated to working with society's most vulnerable citizens.
To be eligible for scholarship, a student must meet the following criteria:
Endowed scholarship consideration may require additional documents and recipients may be notified after admission depending upon the selection criteria. Domestic and permanent resident applicants are strongly encouraged to complete a FAFSA to be eligible for any need-based endowed or external scholarships and/or graduate student loans.
Applicants to Seattle University Graduate Programs are eligible to apply for the AmeriCorps Alumni Scholarship.
Recipients of the scholarship receive a total award of $3,000 toward tuition, which is distributed over the first two years of the student's academic program. Eligible applicants must have successfully completed (or will have completed) an AmeriCorps term of service by the time of enrollment in their graduate program. Seven new scholarships are awarded annually.
Graduate Assistantships in teaching, research and marketing/recruitment may be available to qualified students.
Each academic year, the MSW department has student worker positions that may be available. Availability is based on whether current student workers are graduating or moving to other positions. Students are also free to reach out to other graduate programs within the university to ask about employment opportunities within other departments as well.
Faculty are always applying for grants and funding for research. Periodically, faculty members will be awarded a grant that allows them to hire an MSW student to help them with their project. Faculty will notify students as opportunities arise.
The Lemieux Library has a comprehensive guide to institutional and local funding databases.
