The Title IV-E Child Welfare Partnership (CWP)
The Title IV-E Child Welfare Partnership (CWP) program is a collaboration between the School of Social Work at Texas State University and the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS). The CWP program aims to increase the qualifications and numbers of BSW/MSW graduates who enter the field of child welfare, and to enhance the knowledge and skills of selected DFPS employees through graduate social work education. Students in the program receive financial assistance and ongoing training while completing their social work degree, in exchange for working for DFPS for a period of time after graduation. If you want to enhance your social work knowledge and make a difference in the lives of children and families, the Child Welfare Partnership program may be for you!
If you are a current BSW or MSW student at Texas State and you are interested in working in child welfare after graduation, visit CWP Program for Current Social Work Students.
If you are a current Child Protective Services (CPS) employee in Regions 1, 2, 7, 8, or 9 in Texas and you are interested in enhancing your social work knowledge and skills while continuing to work at CPS, visit CWP Program for Current CPS Employees.
