2023 Licensing Exam Grants
Through a generous donation in 2022 from our partners at Latinx in Social Work, we are thrilled to announce the launch of our inaugural grant program, designed to assist Latino and/or bilingual social workers in New York State with their licensing exam expenses. Three (3) recipients will be awarded $500 each to be applied towards their exam and licensing fees.
Campaign for Fair and Equitable Competency Measures for entry-level Social Work Licensing
Following the dismal report by ASWB on the pass rates of prospective BIPOC social workers, we are currently working with partners like Social Workers for Justice NY, NASW NYS, Latinx in Social Work, and other leaders in the field to bring about fundamental change and possibly even eliminate the licensing exam. To strengthen our case against the current version of the exam, we urge social workers across New York to share their stories with us. If you know anyone who has also faced challenges with the exam, please encourage them to fill out the form as well.
