£1,500 funding on offer for social workers to develop their practice

The Social Workers’ Educational Trust is encouraging social workers to apply for one of two £1,500 grants for undertaking research into key areas of practice.

Qualified and experienced social workers can apply for either a SWET Research Scholarship, aimed at research projects around inter-professional or multi-agency practice, or an Anne Cummins Memorial Scholarship for a study project on health related social work.

Both the 2012 scholarships are worth £1,500.

To apply for one or both of the grants, applicants should complete the Trust’s scholarship application form and include a proposal of not more than 500 words, setting out the aims, estimated costs, timescale and intended outcomes/benefits of the research project.

Application forms can be obtained from the Hon. Secretary, Social Workers’ Educational Trust, BASW, 16 Kent Street, Birmingham B5 6RD
