Applying to the MSW program is a two-step process:
The deadline to submit completed MSW applications for enrollment in Fall Semester 2014 is February 15, 2014. Any applications received and completed after February 15, 2014 will be reviewed on a space available basis. The deadline for completed Assistantship applications is February 15, 2014.
Applications are considered complete, when the following items are received in the School of Social Work, 105 Tucker Hall, The University of Georgia, Athens, GA 30602-7016:
For faster processing, we recommend that you submit your entire School of Social Work application (application, narrative, resume, and 3 recommendation letters) all together in one packet. Have your reference writers return their letters to you, in a sealed envelope with their signature across the back flap, so that you may then submit them in your application packet.
Scholarships for Disadvantaged Students (SDS)
Scholarships up to $15,000 per year may be awarded to MSW eligible students. Students must re-apply for each year of funding.
Though the scholarship is only for full-time students, Gwinnett students are eligible to apply. The definition of full-time is 9 credit hours during fall and spring which is the typical load for Gwinnett students. In the one semester of 6 credit hours, Gwinnett students will need to enroll for an additional 3 credits.
For more information, please download the information sheet describing the requirements for the scholarship. Please read very carefully prior to completion of the application.
The application process is separate from the other SSW scholarship application process.
