All Scholars receiving a child welfare scholarship commit to working for a Colorado county department of human services or Tribal child welfare agency in a child welfare capacity for one year post-graduation for each academic year they receive funding.
Graduates must locate a job within two months of graduation. If they are unable to locate a job within the contractual timeframe, they may be approved for an extension on a case-by-case basis. Graduates must demonstrate efforts to secure employment and stay in regular communication with program staff, in order to be approved for an extension. Once graduates finish their work commitment they must submit an Employment Verification Form.
BSSW graduates may defer their work commitment if they are accepted into an MSW program.
Students who do not meet the requirements of the BSSW or MSW programs, field placements, security clearance or work requirements will be required to financial repay the scholarship, including interest and any associated collections costs.
