How to apply to become a Child Welfare Scholar

If you think you are interested in becoming a child welfare scholar and you have not worked in child welfare previously, we ask that you review How the Child Welfare System Works and the Minnesota Child Welfare Practice Model to provide you with an understanding of the field of child welfare.  We then ask you to watch Child Welfare Choice- A Case Workers Realistic Job Preview, which is part of the application process.

When you are ready to apply, complete the appropriate Child Welfare Scholars application below and return via email to Karen Nichols at knichols@d.umn.edu.
