MSW Fellowship in Aging

As part of its continued commitment to fostering excellence in social work and aging, the Rutgers School of Social Work offers fellowships in social work and aging. MSW students who are selected as fellows demonstrate exceptional commitment to work with older adults and their families. They also demonstrate a high level of potential for enacting leadership in gerontology at any level of social work practice.
