Student Opportunities

The Counselor Education and Social Work Departments (now in the Health & Human Service Professions Department) were awarded two federal grants focused on expanding the workforce creating the BHWET and OWEP programs at PennWest California. These programs provide students with a $10,000 stipend while completing their clinical field experience in the grant’s focus area. This is a wonderful opportunity to expand student learning in high demand areas, while receiving a stipend to assist with expenses. Funding to attend trainings, conferences and associated travel may also be available to HRSA stipend recipients. The BHWET and OWEP programs are currently serving their final cohort of students. The HRSA team hopes to secure additional funding for the OWEP program. Check back in late summer 2022 for updates on future program funding.
