SSWR Doctoral Student Research Spotlight

The SSWR Doctoral Student Members Task Force is launching a new series featuring research conducted by doctoral students. 

The series is intended to bring awareness and attention to the research being done by social work doctoral students, as well as important issues in the field. One spotlight piece will be featured each week on the SSWR Doctoral Student Member Blog & Facebook Page during the fall 2018 semester. 

We invite doctoral student members to submit a brief piece describing their research using the template provided (link below). 

COLLECTION PERIOD ENDS: October 31, 2018 at 11:59pm

Another collection period will be scheduled in late fall/winter 2018 if additional features are needed to complete the fall series. A second collection period is planned for January 2019 for features to run during the spring 2019 semester. 

Eligibility Criteria: 
(1) Doctoral student in a social work or social welfare program. 
(2) Current SSWR member. 
(3) Submission of completed piece by the collection period deadline.
