WSGS at Loyola is committed to helping students find the right program and fit for their needs. We are aware that financial need is an important factor in determining a school of choice and we thus recommend our students to research opportunities. Aside from the opportunities Loyola offers, we occasionally promote other programs that may offer fellowships or financial assistance.


1. In Fall 2017, the University of Buffalo School of Social Work is excited to offer Presidential Fellowships to academically outstanding new PhD in Social Welfare students.

Current postdoctoral fellows also may apply if their doctoral degree was awarded in or after spring 2012. Applicants should demonstrate how they can contribute to faculty diversity, such as through membership in a group that is historically underrepresented or underserved in a particular discipline or through other training or experience.
