Special Call for Submissions: Celebrating 50 Years of CSWE's Minority Fellowship Program

The Journal of Social Work Education (JSWE) invites manuscript submissions for a special issue titled “Celebrating 50 Years of CSWE's Minority Fellowship Program (MFP): Reflecting on the Program's Presence and Impact.” 

As we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of CSWE’s MFP and honor the program's legacy, we seek to represent the profound impact that MFP has had in social work through a special issue of JSWE. The Special Issue on "Celebrating 50 Years of CSWE's Minority Fellowship Program" is scheduled for publication in fall 2024.

Building on the previous call for submissions, the guest editors seek to expand the current collection of previously submitted articles to more fully represent our MFP fellows and alumni, and their communities. Specifically, we invite MFP fellows and alumni to submit manuscripts that amplify the various diverse perspectives. Read the full Call for Submissions to learn more
