Project NETWORK Logo
Project Network is the product of a three year federally-funded grant awarded to the University of Nebraska Omaha, Grace Abbott School of Social Work. The grant is designed to address a significant workforce shortage of social workers trained to work with individuals, age 25 and under, who are experiencing co-occurring disorders in rural Nebraska. Project NETWORK is designed to address this shortage.
Currently, Project NETWORK is recruiting social work students interested in addressing this need. These practica will occur across the state with a focus on underserved areas. Students are asked to commit to a concurrent (back to back semesters) practicum. They will receive a $10,000 stipend for the project; this amount will be issued at $5,000 increments for each semester. Twenty-five students will be selected to participate in the project for year one, and 30 students will be selected for the following two years.
