The HRSA grant has ended and we are no longer taking applications


Application Qualifications

Successful applicants must:

  • communicate their commitment to the social work profession
  • be able to articulate their understanding of ways in which individual social workers can improve the behavioral health of children, adolescents, and transition age youth regardless of which service sector they may be placed, and
  • demonstrate their leadership potential as a generalist social worker
  • Eligible for graduation by August 2017, a semester after Advanced Field Placement


Interested applicants should complete the application including providing a letter of support from an MSW currently working in an agency setting (it doesn’t have to be your field placement) that speaks to your potential to become a leader in the field and a copy of your current transcript. (An unofficial transcript downloaded from “emich” will suffice). A team made up of faculty, EMU field supervisors and EMU graduates will serve as members of the selection team. Applicants will be considered based on their standing in the program, letter of support and quality of application.

Use the form included in the application packet to explain the fellowship to the person you are asking to provide a letter of support for your application. The letter should be from someone who has knowledge of your practice experience and can write a letter of support for your fellowship application.
