The Helen Rehr Social Work in Health Care Scholarship

Stacks Image 15
Top on the agenda of the Center is the establishment of a scholarship in the name of the late Dr. Helen Rehr, a preeminent social work leader in health care. The scholarship would comprise an award of $5,000 to a second year MSW graduate student seeking a practicum and subsequent career in a health care setting and an award of $1,500 to the student's field instructor for professional development.

The establishment of this scholarship is a response to the attrition of professional social workers from employment in health care settings - a trend exacerbated by the Covid 19 pandemic. Not only would the scholarship provide an incentive to graduating social work students, but it would help throw light on the need for social work in health care that Helen Rehr championed.

To launch this initiative, we are seeking donations - no matter the amount - that will make this possible.
