    The Council on Social Work Education(CSWE) has received a 5-year, $7.1 million grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to continue the Minority Fellowship Program (MFP). The grant includes more than $95,000 in additional funding annually compared to grants in the two previous cycles. This will enable the MFP to support additional Fellows and explore supplemental training and resources.

    CSWE’s MFP will support 25 doctoral Fellows and 40 master’s Fellows annually. MFP Fellows, who are selected via a competitive application process, receive a stipend, mentoring, specialized training, and employment that helps them become behavioral health leaders focused on the needs of racial and ethnic minorities.

    The MFP advances the mission of SAMHSA, a division of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, to reduce the effects of substance abuse and mental illness on America’s communities by training individuals to work with underrepresented and underserved persons with or at risk for mental health and/or substance abuse disorders. The CSWE MFP has supported more than 650 doctoral Fellows since 1974 and 160 master’s Fellows since 2014 who have strengthened the social work profession as behavioral health practitioners, researchers, policymakers, and educators.
