The “Grow Your Own” Social Work Grant was established through House Bill 3. The grant funding provides financial support to Missouri residents who are seeking their Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) or Master of Social Work (MSW). The funding helps Social Work students continue their education and rapidly enter the field of social work. Funding can be used for cost of course work tuition and general fees.
