How to Apply
We are no longer accepting applications for 2017-2018 academic year. All internship positions have been filled.
We will begin accepting applications for the 2018-2019 academic year starting November 1, 2017. Applications will be accepted from November 1, 2017 - January 31, 2018. Please contact your field office directly for an application. We interview and place students February-March, for the upcoming school year, and once the interview process has begun we do not accept additional applicants.
Additional application information includes the following:
- This is a very fast paced and demanding environment, where both independence and team collaboration are essential skills. We are interested in students who can demonstrate initiative, a strong work ethic, an above average GPA and excellent writing skills. Additionally a clear concise resume and volunteer / work experience are very important in helping intern candidates stand out from others.
- The social work placement process is very competitive. We interview more students than we accept for field placement. Having an interview does not guarantee that you will secure a field placement.
- Placement options are for 2nd year MSW students and Advanced Standing students only. We do not have placements for undergraduate or 1st year MSW students.
- There are no summer internship options at this time.
- There is no wait list.
