    The Taiyeb and Atma Mama International Social Work Fellowship

    When social workers connect with individuals, families, communities or governments, they become agents of social change and economic justice. Increasingly, social workers are called to work not only in the United States but in many other parts of the world.

    Each year, the Taiyeb and Atma International Social Work Fellowship provides financial support for round-trip airfare and a small stipend for up to two eligible graduate social work students in the International and Community Development track at Monmouth University.

The fellowship supports student work in any part of the world, with a preference given first to students who will work with Native Hawaiians and second to students who will work with other indigenous populations. A maximum amount of $1,000.00 will be made available in any given year.

    All Kanehe Fellows must complete all coursework and field requirements necessary for graduation from the MSW program at Monmouth.
