Child Welfare Education for Baccalaureates

Child Welfare Education for Baccalaureates (CWEB) is a program administered by the University of Pittsburgh's School of Social Work. The CWEB program is a cooperative effort among the United States Administration for Children and Families, the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services, and fourteen undergraduate social work degree programs in Pennsylvania accredited by the Council on Social Work Education. Its goal is to strengthen public child welfare services in Pennsylvania by providing educational opportunities for undergraduate social work majors preparing for employment in one of Pennsylvania's 67 public child welfare agencies. Qualified persons who are enrolled as social work majors in any of the approved schools on either a full-time or part-time basis may receive substantial financial support in return for a contractual obligation to accept employment in a Pennsylvania public child welfare agency following their studies.
