Alan Ingram Legacy Scholarship

The Legacy Scholarship, funded by members of the Minnesota Chapter of NASW, represents the commitment on the part chapter members to encourage new social workers to make a commitment to the professional association, and to build a chapter that reflects the diversity of persons engaged in social work. Through this scholarship, the chapter recognizes the potential of new social workers, particularly those from historically oppressed populations, to continue building a profession that is responsive to the needs of a diverse society. Further, the chapter supports the efforts by those new professionals to respond to persons in need through the practice of professional social work. For details on how to apply, Click Here

College Cost Reduction Act of 2007

The law forgives outstanding education debt for those persons that meet the eligibility requirements. Those who can benefit from this type of assistance are employees that have made 120 monthly payments on their loans while serving full-time as social workers in public child or family service agencies, government, nonprofit, military, education, and other areas. The loan forgiveness provisions became effective on October 1, 2007. It is important to note that payments made after October 1, 2007 on an existing loan can count towards the 120 payments if the loan meets certain criteria.
