Child Welfare Professional Enhancement Program (CWPEP)

Oral Roberts University Social Work Program participates with the University of Oklahoma and other accredited schools in the state to provide the CWPEP program. Students must be social work majors and in their junior year to qualify. Applicants attend a child welfare screening to determine if this is what they want to do, complete an application, background check (including driving record), and are interviewed for selection. These selected take a course in "child welfare" and have their senior practicum experience in child welfare at a Department of Human Services county office. Students are paid an educational stipend of $7128 per year for the final two years of college; and, in exchange for the financial assistance they are obligated to work for DHS Child Welfare, upon graduation, for the two years they received the money. If graduates opt to not fulfill their child welfare obligation, they pay back the money received. See additional information below regarding: Application Form and CWPEP Contract. Also, see Links to CWPEP program sponsored by the University of Oklahoma.
Note: as of summer of 2011, starting pay for a CSW I (no professional social work experience) is $28,572.84 with an annual benefit package of $7,239.48) for the employee only. A CSW II (one who has completed probationary employment and after two years experience) moves to $31,491.93 in salary with same employee benefit package as the CSW I.
