The Office of Global Activities (OGA) offers funding to students who would like to propose and plan an event with a Global theme, for Global Social Work Week or any other time of the year.
Student events that have been proposed and funded in the past include showing a documentary with a global focus and hosting a discussion afterward or organizing a panel of social workers who work (or have done work) abroad. Events are not limited to these categories and we encourage students to get creative and propose something new.
Two grants of up to $250 are available annually. Although applications are taken on an on-going basis, requests for a Global Social Work week event must be received by the Tuesday prior to the week using the Program Request Form below and must meet the specified funding requirements.
Grants of up to $2,000 are available to graduate and professional school students and faculty for the purpose of planning and conducting research-related conferences, symposia, and workshops in area and international studies.
Provides students and student organizations with a source of funds for involvement in academic multicultural activities (up to $1000 per year).

The Rosemary Sarri Endowed Scholarship was established by gifts from alumni and friends to honor Rosemary Sarri, PhD, on her retirement from her distinguished teaching and research career at the UM School of Social Work. Dr. Sarri generously matched these contributions to double the amount of the fund, and she continues to make gifts to the fund each year. This award provides two scholarships, one for students in the MSW program and one for the students in the Joint PhD Program who have interest in social policy or community organization. Preference is given to students with financial need.
