For Undergraduate Social Work Majors

The DCS Tuition Assistance Program provides financial support to selected undergraduate-level social work majors who are committed to working with the children and families served by DCS upon completion of their Bachelor of Social Work/Bachelor of Science in Social Work (BSW/BSSW) degree at a participating university. 

The Certification Program is to recruit and develop social work students who are committed to working in child welfare for the DCS workforce. This program offers students the Child Welfare Case Management Certification and the benefits therein without providing financial assistance while the student is in school. Students do not go into a contractual agreement to work for the department once they graduate in the Certification Program.
