Survey for field-related funding

  • 1.  Survey for field-related funding

    Posted Apr 28, 2022 15:47

    The purpose of this survey is to gain a better understanding about field-related funding in social work programs and schools.  

    We have identified five sources of academic institutional student funding not including loans.

    Questions on this survey are specific to 3) field-related funding:

    1) Student employment, e.g., teaching/graduate assistant, work-study positions

    2) Academic scholarships, i.e., supported by endowments but not specific to internship placement or responsibilities

    3) Field-related

    1. Work-based placements, i.e., students are paid as employees, not as student interns
    2. Agency funding, i.e., stipends paid by the internship agency to the interns
    3. Program/School funding, i.e., endowment or grant-related funding tied to internship expectations

    Please note that the questions are specific to the number of internships, not the number of agencies. For example, if you have one agency that routinely hosts three interns, that would count as three internships.

    Please submit one survey per field program:

    We look forward to sharing aggregate findings of this survey with CSWE field directors and programs. All survey responses are anonymous by survey design. You will have the option to receive more information by completing a separate and confidential contact form on the last screen.
