Title IV-E Child Welfare Scholars Information Sessions

Are You Interested in Making a Difference in Lives of Maryland’s Children and Families? Title IV-E Child Welfare Scholars Information Sessions The Title IV-E Education for Public Child Welfare Program prepares MSW students to practice in Maryland’s public child welfare programs. The program provides field placements in public child welfare agencies, cutting edge training in Motivational Interviewing, Trauma education, field seminars, and education in best practices in child welfare policy and practice. Participants receive an educational stipend of $9,000 annually and agree to seek post-graduate employment in Maryland’s public child welfare system.
