The Viriya Social Work Fieldwork Education Support Fund (FES) supports the education of social work students pursuing a diploma or degree in social work. The funds will be used as a fieldwork education support fund to support social work students who face financial challenges during their fieldwork education placement required as part of their coursework.
The prolonged COVID-19 pandemic has caused financial strains for some students and their families. Viriya FES will provide interim assistance to support the students in their education such that they can focus on their learning and competency building during their fieldwork placement.
