What is the University Partnership Program in Child Welfare?
CSU is a member of the state of Ohio's collaborative partnership program in child welfare. This program seeks to develop creative child welfare leaders, policymakers, managers, and direct service practitioners who are capable of critical thinking and promoting best practices and the highest quality of service to children, families, and communities. The program accomplishes this by providing coordinated, integrated, and high-quality social work education and training with a focus on social work practice in public child welfare settings.
At Cleveland State, any student enrolled in undergraduate social work is eligible for participation in this scholarship program. Selected student participants are required to enroll in child welfare courses and complete their field placement in a public child service agency. Following the completion of their degree, the students must obtain employment at any of the 88 public child welfare agencies within the state of Ohio. An additional benefit for a student participating in the program is that, depending upon their academic status when entering the program (junior or senior,) they will be eligible to receive a financial stipend between $5,000-$10,000.
