Research and Training Funding

Interested in research? The Mandel School is a leader in research and training—the impact of our work is focused on advancing our mission to create a more just world. We have opportunities inside and outside the classroom to expand your experience. Students have worked part-time for one of our nine research and training centers as a research assistant or though a research practicum. We also offer training scholarships for eligible students:

Child Welfare Fellows Program

Through our Child Welfare Fellows Program, a cohort of Ohio’s public child welfare employees will earn scholarships to pursue master’s degrees in social work, focused on child welfare leadership and supervision. Fellows join our Intensive Weekend program that’s designed for working professionals and will receive at least 50% off tuition; participate in programming on topics such as advocacy/policy analysis, asking the right types of questions, analyzing data, writing reports and more; take at least one course on supervision and leadership; and more. Learn more about the program.

Trauma-Informed Practice NMT Fellowship

The Center on Trauma and Adversity offers a $7,500 scholarship for five eligible second-year students, who have completed the Trauma and the Brain Training Program in their first year, to receive advanced training in the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics (NMT).

Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Integrated Behavioral Health, Opioid and Substance Use Disorders Training Program

The HRSA training program is an interprofessional education program with MetroHealth that provides a $10,000 training stipend to select Mandel School students who are focusing on opioid and substance use, child and adult behavioral health, and interdisciplinary trauma-informed practice.

Survivor Link + Public Health AmeriCorps

Survivor Link + Public Health AmeriCorps members will engage in 675 service hours (between August 1 and July 31) to earn a $4,000 stipend and a $2,474.27 Segal Education Award.
