The nation's first major multi-university regional consortium in partnership with leading agencies serving seniors, the Geriatric Social Work Education Consortium (GSWEC) offers an integrated field and academic graduate social work education experience for students interested in gerontology. The collaboration was developed to strengthen geriatric social work education, increase social workers' competency in the area of aging and recruit graduate social work students to enter this emerging, high-growth field.
GSWEC offers second-year students who specialize in gerontology a $4,000 stipend, with no pay back requirement. Students can expect aging-focused field placements and competency-based geriatric training.
