Social work student wins fellowship

Dione King, a doctoral candidate in the School of Social Work, was one of five students from across the country awarded the 2010-2011 Mental Health and Substance Abuse Fellowship through the Council on Social Work Education’s Minority Fellowship Program. The fellows were selected for their commitment to excellence in mental health and substance abuse services that will improve the social well-being of minority communities.

The fellowship provides mentorship, training and support to ethnic minorities in social work to complete a doctoral degree and pursue leadership roles in mental health research and mental health services.
