Kendall Institute Grants Program

2017 KAKI Grantee Dr. Jane McPherson and project partners in Grenada

Since 2015 the Katherine A. Kendall Institute for International Social Work Education (Kendall Institute) has awarded grants to support international social work education projects that prepare U.S. students for global citizenship and encourage opportunities for international social work. This year the call emphasizes the need for projects to bring the global context into U.S. social work classrooms and be transferable and sustainable across institutions. 

The 2022 grant cycle opened on February 21, 2022, and has been extended to close on May 1, 2022, at 11:59 PM (EDT).




An informational webinar about the request for proposals was held on March 2, 2022, at 4:00 PM (EST). To view the webinar recording please review the information listed below:
