50th Anniversary Social Work Book Scholarship

The School of Social Work is committed to providing our students with a strong foundation to succeed and become the next generation of social work leaders. The 50th Anniversary Social Work Book Scholarship not only celebrates 50 years and counting of collaboration, innovation and transformation in our School but helps to fund textbooks for social work students with a financial need.

 

With funding support from the school’s Social Work Society and Board of Friends, the book scholarship was established in 2018. In 2018 with your support, the school raised funds during the inaugural Bama Blitz campaign to award 30 textbook scholarship to social work students. For this year’s Bama Blitz campaign, we are again asking for your generous support to continue our tradition of helping bright and talented social work students who need financial assistance with purchasing textbooks.

 

Many people don’t know that textbooks are not billed through the student billing office at UA. For this reason, many students must wait on a refund from scholarships or financial aid. In turn, this puts many of them several weeks into their classes before they can purchase the books they need. This scholarship will change all of that for our students.

 

The School of Social Work’s goal this year is to raise $5,000 to award 10 students with $500 textbook scholarships.

"It's definitely important to have this book scholarship in the School of Social Work because it shows that the school and UA are here to support students and help them succeed."

Devon Kelly, UA Student

"I'm a first-generation college student that comes from a family that really doesn't understand what all it takes to attend a university. This means I don't have financial support back home," said Kelly, who is from Chicago, Illinois. "Being awarded a book scholarship was important because it allowed me to not stress about my finances and to focus on my academics."

Concentration: Children, Adolescents and Families
