Doctoral Education in Social Work

In the 1960s and 1970s, federal financial support for doctoral students was very common, but this is not the case now. However, research assistantships (some of them provided through federally funded faculty research grants) are now more common today than teaching assistantships, although school-funded scholarships are equally common. About one third of the students surveyed received no aid at all, and not all of those who were promised financial support at admission received what had been promised. Open-ended comments from students suggested that inadequate financial aid was their biggest problem. Most had student loans, but other forms of personal indebtedness (e.g., home mortgage, credit card debt) were also common. Aid was especially limited for part-time students and for the later phases of doctoral study (after completion of coursework).
