With grant support from the Maryland Behavioral Health Administration, three graduate programs of social work, (UMSSW, Salisbury University and Morgan State University) are addressing the growing need for licensed, skilled, Social Workers to work with individuals seeking substance use disorder treatment. 

The Substance Use Disorder Workforce Expansion (SUDWE) Fellowship is an exciting opportunity for MSW students starting the advanced year or accepted with advanced standing, who want to become confident and competent in the treatment of substance use disorders.  The SUDWE Fellowship provides students with specialized substance use treatment-related training to better engage and equip them to participate in the behavioral health workforce 

BHWISE SUDWE Fellows are supported in their advanced practicum year with a stipend of $15,000 per student.
