The Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences at Case Western Reserve University is excited to offer a minimum $10,000 Guaranteed Annual Scholarship to admitted students.

“We want to make it possible for people to make the choice to come to the Mandel School and achieve their goal to be a leader in social change,” said Dean Grover C. Gilmore, PhD, in announcing the scholarship. “Made possible through the generous support of our alumni and friends, this scholarship reflects our ongoing commitment to student success in all forms, which is especially important to us as we celebrate the school’s Centennial and begin our next 100 years of educational innovation.”

The $10,000 Guaranteed Annual Scholarship will be offered to all admitted students in the full-time, on-campus master’s programs in social work and nonprofit organizations. It is a minimum annual award; each student application will also be automatically considered for larger scholarships. For students in the two-year social work master’s program, the total scholarship amount will be $20,000 ($10,000 per year minimum). On-campus, full-time social work master’s students also automatically receive a $1,000 field education award per semester, to help defray the costs of their field education requirement. The deadline has been EXTENDED to May 15.

“When you combine this scholarship with our low fees, no application fee, and Cleveland’s low cost of living, it makes the Mandel School’s top-ranked education far more accessible to people throughout the United States and around the world,” said Richard Sigg, Director of Admissions at the Mandel School, which is ranked #9 in the United States and #1 in Ohio by U.S. News and World Report.
