The IU School of Social Work at Fort Wayne Diversity and Equity Scholarship was created by faculty to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion by providing financial assistance to social work students who are often underrepresented in academic institutions. Data shows that students of color and LGBTQ+ students are more likely to encounter hardships that impact their ability to participate in higher education such as enrolling in programs or maintaining enrollment status due to financial concerns. Additionally, these students are more likely to graduate with more debt with higher student loan interest rates. The development of this scholarship aims to alleviate the financial hardships on these students and create an equal opportunity for all students to pursue their education.
Thank you for your generous support and helping advance the School of Social Work’s mission to become a more equitable space for all social work students!
