    Social work is a rewarding and ever-growing field! According to the US Department of Labor, the need for social workers will increase by 13 percent by 2029, which is much greater than most other occupations. A social work major has a number of career paths, including working in city/state agencies, school settings, substance abuse counseling, and geriatric settings. If you earn a master’s degree in social work, you can also become a licensed counselor. No matter what path you take, social work scholarships will help fund your education.

    How to win scholarships for social work students

    There are many social work scholarships out there, but there are even more applicants. That’s why it’s important to craft applications that stand out to the reader. One of the best ways to do that is by focusing on your essays.

    Before you start writing, try sitting down and doing some reflection. Think about what has led you to pursue social work. What impact do you hope to make, and what have you done so far that indicates you’ll be successful? Try jotting down some ideas as you brainstorm, without concerning yourself with prompts or word limits or grammar. Then, once you’ve done your reflection, you can craft it into essays.

    Resources for social work students

    Like students in any field, social work students stand to benefit from networking with professionals in their field. Being in touch with people who have progressed further in their career can help you gain perspective on what you want to do, figure out how to accomplish your professional goals, and more. Here are a few organizations that social work students may consider joining to network with social workers.

    National Association of Social Workers

    The NASW works to connect social workers and social work-adjacent professionals across the country. These connections help advance and refine the field of social work, and put its workers in communication with people in other fields. Student membership costs $60 per year and comes with a host of benefits, including literature, conferences, and networking tools.

    Clinical Social Work Association

    The Clinical Social Work Association works to advocate for social workers across the nation. It fights for equitable wages and offers an opportunity for professionals in the field to connect. They also offer job postings and other ways to get students involved. Membership is only $25 per year for students.

    Council on Social Work Education

    For those who are interested in educating a next generation of social workers, this organization will be of special interest. Here, you’ll find conversations on how social work is taught and initiatives to shape the policy surrounding the field.

    Financial aid for social work students

    If you are a social work student, the scholarships search is just one way to pay for your degree! Current and prospective social work students can also access need-based financial aid, which includes grants like the FSEOG Grant and Pell Grant, federal student loans, and work study.

    To access any of these types of need-based financial aid, students will need to actually apply for need-based aid. There are two major applications that you should know about:

    Every college’s financial aid process will vary and we always recommend that students consult with the college in question for details and deadlines.

    Frequently asked questions about social work scholarships

    Can I use psychology scholarships to study social work?

    Some psychology scholarships, such as the NAJA scholarship, also allow students pursuing social work. Although the two are separate fields, they share some key similarities and oftentimes, you will find that organizations geared towards psychology will also be concerned with social work. But as always, you should read the terms and conditions of each scholarship carefully before applying.

    Does social work pay well?



    This is an important question to consider when deciding how much you can afford to take out in student loans. According to the 2020 BLS data, social workers have a median salary of $51,760 per year.

    This is on the lower end of the spectrum as far as college-educated salaries go. So, if you are interested in becoming a social worker, you should be sure to budget very thoughtfully to ensure that you don’t take out more in debt than you can afford to pay back.

    How many years of school do you need to be a social worker?

    In most states, you’ll have to complete your bachelor’s degree, and then complete a two-year masters program to become a licensed social worker. You may also have to perform up to two years of supervised work before you obtain a license to work unsupervised. If you know that you want to be a social worker before you start your undergrad, you might be able to bring this down to four total years, by obtaining a Bachelor’s in Social Work, or BSW.

    Are there social work scholarships for graduate students?

    Yes! Many of the scholarships on this list are meant for students getting their masters in social work. We also have a dedicated list of scholarships for graduate students, and a free tool to custom-match you with vetted scholarships. This is a great tool to use for any stage of your education.
