Social work has two endowed scholarships for pre-majors and majors. In 2003, the Program established its first endowed scholarship (Vernice Monroe) for students majoring in social work. In spring 2009 the second endowed scholarship (Archie Land) for students majoring in social work was initiated through local gift contributions. These are awarded each year in the spring for the following fall/spring.
Eligibility criteria: Students must have 75 hours completed have a GPA greater than 3.3 and not be graduating before December of the year in which they apply. Students must copy their main financial aid Award page from Banner documenting all sources of financial assistance by Lamar Go to Banner Self Serve Financial Aid. Students meeting the GPA requirements will be notified via email they are eligible to apply and given an application. Scholarship students are invited and expected to attend the scholarship dinner each spring hosted by Lamar University.
We also have three paid stipends (5,000.00) with Child Protective Services. This requires a student to take child welfare policy and apply in their junior year for a summer block placement (see Title IV information).
