Graduate Fellowships

Social Work Fellowship

Graduate Fellowships


Am I eligible? 

Applicants to the Fellowship should hold an MSW or equivalent degree and some relevant work experience. 

What would I do? 

The aim of the Fellowship in Social Work is to provide advanced training in theory and practice. The aim is to integrate theoretical learning and clinical practice. Working in our Individual and Family Services, the Fellow’s primary focus is on family therapy and is seen as an opportunity for specialization with families whose children are at a particular developmental age or with certain populations.  

The Fellow is supervised by an experienced MSW and also receives live supervision from one or more teams. The Fellow may also have some opportunities to do individual and group work, as well as participation in a family therapy seminar and other learning experiences. In addition, successful completion requires the submission of an academic paper at the end of the Fellowship, based on an area of clinical interest and with the possibility of future submission for publication. 

How do I apply? 

Applicants should send a resume and cover letter with a description of the areas of focus for their Fellowship year. This may include a theoretical, clinical and/or substantive focus. There is no formal application form. Applications are generally accepted until late-May of the Fellowship year, which starts in September.
