Mental Health Educational Stipend Program
Humboldt State University, in partnership with the California Social Work Education Center (CalSWEC) offers educational stipends of $18,500 for MSW students in their final year whose professional goal is to work in mental health. Students must be in good academic standing in the MSW Program. Students interested in applying should demonstrate an interest in and commitment to mental health services as described in the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA).
The Mental Health Stipend is available to Advanced/Concentration Year Masters students who are selected to complete their field placement with the Humboldt County Department of Health and Human Services - Mental Health Branch or with a local agency that is contracted with DHHS - MHB. Students must be present for an in person interview and must attend a weekly on-campus seminar.
The MHESP application can be found by clicking here.
For more information contact Margi Waller with the HSU Mental Health Educational Stipend Program at Margi.Waller@humboldt.edu.
The application is a two-part process involving both a written statement of interest and a personal interview. All available stipends may not be awarded if it is determined that an equal number of candidates committed to mental health do not exist. Completed applications must have proof of legal residency in the U.S. and a valid California driver's license/state ID.
