  1. I got accepted to Columbia's FT, 2 year online MSW with $25K/year, but deferred to next fall for financial reasons (will be employed FT in the interim). I'm getting cold feet for financial reasons. Is the name brand worth the extra debt? Will it actually open doors? I'm interested in policy work.

    Healthline & NAMI Stronger Scholarship

    Rejected. 😕

    What outside scholarships are you applying for?

    BUMP. Anyone?

    Healthline & NAMI Stronger Scholarship

    I emailed customer service and they said results would be out Wednesday evening.

    Healthline & NAMI Stronger Scholarship

    Did anyone hear back? Website said results would be out today.
  6. I applied on the deadline (May 1). Anyone else? The wait is killing me!
  7. I submitted an app for the Healthline and NAMI Stronger Scholarship; will hear back in mid-June. That's it so far. It seems like funding eligible for MSW programs is rather scarce. Anyone else trying to secure outside funding?
  8. I'm doing the extended residency program, meaning year 1 I'll be doing only doctrinal classes online in the evening while doing paid work FT and then I'll do the fieldwork component in years 2 and 3. I'm not sure if I can stomach another unpaid internship. 😐

    Columbia University-fall 2019

    No, I wasn't allowed to defer my scholarship-just hold my place. They said I had to be reconsidered in 2019. This time around, they gave me $0, so I opted for another program.
