This application is for students who are interested in using their current job in Social Work as their field instruction
site. To be considered for a work/study:
     1) The student must have been employed by the agency for at least six (6) months;
     2) The agency must be willing to reassign the student for the hours of the placement to a different job (this could be a
different unit, different population, different tasks within same unit); and
     3) The agency must be willing to assign a different supervisor to supervise the student’s educational job experience.
The supervisor must be a licensed MSW-level social worker, have at least 3 years post-MSW experience, and have
completed or be willing to complete simultaneously the Seminar in Field Instruction (SIFI).

Work/Study applications for the Fall must be submitted before June 30th. All applications will be reviewed and the
director of the agency will be contacted for verification of the work/study plan. The Field Instruction Department
reserves the right to determine if your request is educationally sound.
