Fellowship Accreditation Policies and Procedures

Fellowship programs accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE)’s Board of Accreditation (BOA) provide training and supervision to master’s-level social work practitioners within one or more defined areas of social work practice.  

The Fellowship Review Committee (FRC) serves as the primary review body for fellowship programs seeking initial or continued accreditation and is responsible for making accreditation decision recommendations to the BOA.

The following process is followed by fellowship programs seeking initial accreditation:

Fellowship Accreditation Handbook

The Post-Master’s Social Work Fellowship Accreditation Handbook was developed to supplement the Accreditation Policy Handbook used for baccalaureate and master’s social work program accreditation. The fellowship handbook identifies the accreditation policies and procedures that apply to post-master’s social work fellowship programs, specifically.
