Dr. Jane Aronson Graduate Scholarship in Social Work & Social Justice

The Jane Aronson Graduate Scholarship in Social Work and Social Justice was established to honour the contribution of Professor Jane Aronson to the McMaster School of Social Work, to McMaster University and the Hamilton community, and to the social work profession in Canada.

Jun 23, 2016

The scholarship is intended to recognize PhD students with a track record of social justice leadership in social work practice. Preference will be given to a student who has at least five years professional practice, a previous degree in social work, and does not hold a major award for the upcoming academic year.

The $2000 scholarship will be awarded by the School of Graduate Studies to a full-time PhD student in the Social Work program, based on the recommendation of the School of Social Work. All students enrolled in the upcoming academic year are eligible to apply. To be considered, students should submit their CV and a 500 word statement outlining their social justice leadership in social work practice and linking this with their (proposed) plan of study. Submit to: Darlene Savoy (). Due: May 9, 2016.

July 2015 marked the end of Jane Aronson's term as Director of the School of Social Work. In honour of her exceptional contribution, the School of Social Work has established a scholarship in her name. This scholarship will support a PhD student who has a track record of critical leadership in social work practice and a plan of study designed to contribute to a more socially just practice. We hope you will join us in making a gift online and with your help, we can celebrate Dr. Aronson while providing vital support to our School’s doctoral students.
