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).
Students who receive Mental Health Educational Stipend Program (MHESP) support are required to intern in a program in county mental health or a community agency that has a contract with county mental health. These students will also be expected to complete training opportunities as a component of their participation in the program. The responsibility of the student upon completion of the MSW program is to work in a program in county mental health or a community agency that has a contract with county mental health.
The MHESP application can be found by clicking here.

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.
