For those who are interested in Child Welfare there is a stipend opportunity to help pay for your education. There is an application and interview process that varies depending on your experience in child welfare as well as if you are a 1st, 2nd, or advanced standing student.The stipend is federal dollars awarded to students who wish to pursue a career and further the child welfare field. There is a commitment to being a stipend recipient; you have to agree to work one year in any Colorado public child welfare agency for at least one year after graduation. In return for this commitment you can receive $14,000 if you agree to work in an urban area, or $17,000 if you agree to work in a rural area towards your GSSW tuition and fees.
