Giving to the Department of Social Work

Give Now: the Campaign for UAB. The Department of Social Work and UAB's College of Arts and Sciences could not do what we do without your support. Traditional revenues such as tuition, fees, federal grants, and state funds provide for daily work, but they often vary with the level of state revenues and enrollments. Gifts from you create a secure, concrete foundation for our future success. They benefit not only students and faculty but also the community as a whole.

The Department is excited to participate in the largest and most comprehensive campaign in UAB's history. The Campaign for UAB: Give Something, Change Everything will have a scope and impact that will extend well beyond our campus and has the potential to create long-lasting, positive change. When you make a donation to UAB, you can choose to donate directly to the Department of Social Work, the College, or the University as a whole.

You can contribute to the Department of Social Work in a number of ways:

The Department of Social Work General Fund – Your gift to the Department of Social Work General Fund provides the department with flexibility to support key priorities of the department. Your support allows us to continue to provide outstanding academic programs and world-class research.

The Norman Eggleston Endowed Scholarship – The Norman Eggleston Scholarship is named in honor of beloved, longtime faculty member and former Director of the UAB Social Work Program, Dr. Norman Eggleston. This scholarship will assist deserving students who are enrolled in the Department of Social Work.

The Chris Dowdell Walker Excellence in Field Scholarship – The Chris Dowdell Walker Excellence in Field Scholarship is named in honor Ms. Chris Dowdell Walker, longtime faculty member and former Field Director of the UAB Department of Social Work. The fund will provide assistance to deserving undergraduate students enrolled in or admitted to the Field Practicum in the Department of Social Work.

We thank you for your support.
