Q: Would I have an opportunity to meet with a staff person at some time during the application process?
A: After reviewing the applications Elizabeth Wharff, PhD, MSW, LICSW (director of the training program), and other senior social workers interview selected applicants.

Q: Do I need my Massachusetts social work licensure before I apply?
A: No, you do not need to have MA licensure in order to apply. Fellows should have their MA licensure (LCSW) by September of the year they start the fellowship. Please note that in MA, LCSW is the first level of social work licensure, followed by LICSW. This may vary from state to state. For more information, please visit naswma.org. 

Q: Am I eligible to receive health benefits?

A: Yes. All fellows except LEND are eligible to receive benefits at an additional cost.

Q: What days are the LEND fellowship?
A: All day Friday starting at 8:00 a.m. is required. Other time can be negotiated.

Q: What should I write about in my two page letter?
A: You should include those aspects that led you to apply for this Fellowship. State what you hope to learn, how you learn most readily, whether you have special interests you would like to develop, and how you think this advanced training might help you realize future goals. 

Q: I live outside the United States. Am I still eligible to apply? 

A: Absolutely, yes. We welcome applications from accredited programs across the country and around the world. Email us anytime to discuss further. 

Q: I am unable to come to Boston in-person to interview for the Fellowship. Is that a problem?

A: Not at all. We are happy to interview promising candidates by phone, video conference, skype. We'll do what we can to make it happen. Don't hesitate to ask.
