Grants and Scholarship Opportunities


Here is the link to a grant opportunity for organizations that wish to provide SUD trainings for social workers, counselors, marriage & family therapists, health service administration practitioners, and others:

This would be a great opportunity to expand admission to provide statewide SUD training (via webinars?) to a host of practitioners in IL. It could be the basis of a research study and conference presentations. There is such a huge need for SUD practitioners. "The National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) 2018 data indicate that an unacceptably high 92% of individuals who meet criteria for needing SUD treatment do not receive it" (as cited in SAMHSA, 2019, n.p.).




Purpose: The purpose of this call for proposals is to fund studies that increase understanding of group work. Two grants up to $1,000 each will be awarded for research projects that meet the criteria listed below. Projects must address the focus areas of group leadership, group membership, group processes, or training and supervision in group work practice. Projects may address any of the four group work types (i.e., task, psychoeducational, counseling, or therapy). 


Who May Apply: The competition is open to both professional and student members of ASGW. Student researchers are especially encouraged to apply. Individuals may submit (or be a member of a submission team) for only one proposal. 


Grant Award Period:  1 year (January 1st, 2020-December, 31st, 2020) 


Deadline for Proposal Submission:  The deadline for proposal submission is September 9th, 2019, 11:59pm EST. Funding decisions will be made in October, and applicants will be notified of their funding status by November 1st, 2019. Award recipients will be officially recognized at the ASGW Biannual Conference in Dorado del Mar, Puerto Rico scheduled for January 30th-February 2nd, 2020. Recipient(s) are encouraged to be present to accept their award(s) at the ASGW Biannual Conference.
