Society for Social Work and Research Fellowship Program

The Society for Social Work and Research (SSWR) Fellows are members who have served with distinction to advance the mission of the Society -- to advance, disseminate, and translate research that addresses issues of social work practice and policy and promotes a diverse, equitable and just society.

The SSWR Fellowship has been established by the Society to honor and to recognize current SSWR members for their individual accomplishments, leadership and contribution to SSWR as a scientific society. It is anticipated that SSWR Fellows will serve as role models and mentors for individuals pursuing careers in social work research and will continue to actively advance the mission of SSWR.

Eligibility for the SSWR Fellow designation is determined by a point system established by the SSWR Board under which individual members are awarded points for participation in the activities listed below. Eligible years are determined based upon available, verifiable records (1994-2013).
