Think of a number from $100 to $100,000

And then make that number your generous pledge to the BU School of Social Work MSW/MPH challenge.

What is it?

A deeply generous donor and great fan of SSW has stepped up and offered a $100,000 challenge grant in support of our national known MSW/MPH program.  This challenge is meant to be a motivator, an incentive, and a terrific way to building our scholarship and other funds in support of this program.

The challenge grant of $100,000 will come to SSW if – and rather when! – we gather $100,000 in donations and pledges to the School between now and June  30, 2015.  The donor will match pledges and donations dollar for dollar, with proceeds going to endowed scholarship support.

Who will benefit?

School of Social Work MSW/MPH candidates in need of scholarship assistance.

Why? And why now?

The challenge is being offered by a person who knows the enormous value and empowerment of scholarship and program assistance at SSW and the difference it can make in the lives of those preparing for professional careers as public health social workers.  And there is no better time than right now to make it happen.

What gifts qualify?

Donor gifts in any amount are welcome.  Your pledge or gift is most needed – and will be gratefully accepted – for use in supporting scholarships.  But gifts meant for other purposes will be heartily welcomed and will count towards this generous challenge grant.  Are you interested in supporting one of the following areas?

  • Student scholarships
  • Support for student travel, conference registration, and professional memberships
  • Stipends to assist students in purchasing course-related materials

Ready to take up the challenge?
