The Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC) is pleased to announce availability of the 2022-23 Post-Master of Social Work School Social Work Professional Educator License Scholarship Program application.

Program Highlights

  • The Post-Master of Social Work School Social Work Professional Educator License Scholarship Program was designed to encourage students to become social workers in Illinois schools and to provide minority children with access to a greater number of positive minority role models, better reflecting the diversity of Illinois students.
  • Scholarship assistance is available for qualifying licensed social workers, with master's degrees in social work, who wish to obtain an Illinois Professional Educator License with an Endorsement in School Social Work.
  • Each scholarship pays tuition and mandatory fee costs for an academic year (including summer) at participating Illinois public universities, with priority given to minority applicants.
  • To receive this scholarship, an applicant must agree to work as a social worker in an Illinois school.
    • If this commitment is not fulfilled, the scholarship converts to a loan, which must be repaid with interest.
  • 2022-23 awards will cover all terms of the 2022-23 academic year (fall 2022, spring 2023, and summer 2023) for which the applicant is eligible and enrolled.
