Pennyrose Perez Named CSWE Minority Fellow
The Council on Social Work Education’s (CSWE’s) Minority Fellowship Program (MFP) recently announced the third Now is the Time: MFP-Youth Master’s Student Cohort. Congratulations to Pennyrose Perez, Tulsa MSW student, who was named of the 40 fellows.
The fellowship for advanced social work master’s students is funded by a grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). It offers financial and other supports to direct-practice focused students who are committed to providing mental health services to at-risk children, adolescents, and young adults aged 16–25 in underserved minority communities.
Pennyrose is looking forward to beginning the next stage of her journey to become more knowledgeable and proficient in providing behavioral health services to children, adolescents, transition youth, and their families while working in the public health setting. She is also excited to share the experience with the other fellows while gaining practical knowledge in providing treatment and prevention services.
