The University of Kentucky College of Social Work is pleased to announce the addition of the eService Fellowship Program to its academic offerings. The eService Fellowship is part of the college’s ongoing commitment to workforce development in the social services space and will officially begin in the 2023-2024 academic term.

The eService Fellowship is an interdisciplinary initiative that supports graduate students in exploring innovative ways to utilize cutting-edge technologies which shape social and behavioral health services. eService Fellows will examine current trends and deficits in technology deployment, identify ways that technologies can improve social and behavioral health service delivery, and conduct research on novel approaches to service delivery models.

eService Fellows will participate in a host of prescribed learning and enrichment activities. Each fellow will also be assigned an eService project in one of three eService tracks: Child and Family Services, Military Behavioral Health, or Social/Behavioral Health Workforce Wellness. Fellows will work on this project in collaboration and consultation with faculty, staff, and/or other students across the institution.  

The eService Fellowship is open to doctoral students in the College of Social Work. Fellows will receive full coverage of tuition and fees for the two-year fellowship term (Fall and Spring semesters) and a $20,000 stipend per academic year.
