Support the Press Scholarship Endowment

Leonard Press Scholarship Endowment in Clinical Social Work A Project of Named Scholarships & Endowments

This scholarship has been named in honor of Professor Leonard Press and the amazing impact he has made on generations of Maryland social workers.

Throughout his career at the University of Maryland School of Social Work, Len was widely regarded as an outstanding teacher who made the classroom a lively laboratory for experiencing and integrating the cognitive, affective, and action dimensions of clinical social work practice.

Funds to this endowment will be used to begin providing a new annual scholarship to students with an interest in clinical social work practice.
