Colorado Child Welfare Scholars Consortium (CCWSC) Payback Process

All students receiving a financial stipend through the Child Welfare Scholars Program commit to working for a Colorado county department of human services or Colorado Tribal child welfare agency in a position that serves Title IV-E eligible children and families for one year post-graduation for each academic year they receive funding.

CCWSC program 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. Child Welfare Scholars must demonstrate efforts to secure employment and stay in regular communication with CCWSC program staff, in order to be approved for an extension.

BSSW graduates may defer work payback if they are accepted into the MSW program. Additional options are outlined within the Scholar's contract.

Child Welfare Scholars 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 stipend, including interest and any associated collections costs.
