Funding for CSWE and SSWR Conferences

Posted: October 13, 2009

Please complete the attached personal debit form, travel reimbursement form and provide receipt(s) if you’re planning to attend the CSWE or/and SSWR conference this year. Dean Laura Lein has been generous in providing funds for the Joint Doctoral students to attend these two conferences. As funds are limited, the $400 (for each conference) will be available on a first come, first serve basis. A maximum of 10 students will be funded for CSWE and 12 students for SSWR conference.

The Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) Conference will be in San Antonio, Texas on November 6-9, 2009.


The Society for Social Work and Research (SSWR) Conference will be in San Francisco, CA on January 14-17, 2010.


We will distribute the funds with the following priorities:

1. Students who are presenting papers

2. Students who are interviewing for jobs or who have scheduled information interviews

3. Students who would like to attend the conference for professional development

If you would like to be consider for funding, please indicate which group above (#1, #2, or #3) you are in and provide a one page (maximum) networking plan for the conference. This would be a list of session(s) you plan to attend, people you hope to meet, and meetings or reception you plan to attend.

Also, remember that you have a personal debit account that you may use for these conferences. You can also apply to Rackham for conference travel if you are presenting a paper.

Please contact Laura Thomas (lshirley@umich.edu) if you would like to know your current debit account balance.

Please submit the personal debit form & travel reimbursement form to the Doc Office by Friday, October 30th.
