Northwestern Oklahoma State University’s Department of Social Work is proud to announce Kylie Pethoud, Seiling senior, as the new stipend recipient of the Child Welfare Professional Enhancement Program (CWPEP) for the 2014-2015 academic year.

CWPEP provides funds for students who plan careers in child welfare services in Oklahoma. The stipends are awarded to full-time students majoring in social work and provide money toward educational expenses to participating students. Students who receive the stipends complete educational internships in child welfare agencies within the Oklahoma Department of Human Services (OKDHS). Upon graduation, students are assured employment in the participating DHS programs.

CWPEP is a Title IV-E partnership between the University of Oklahoma, the Oklahoma Department of Human Services, the US Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Children and Families Council, and Social Work Education (CSWE) in accredited social work programs in Oklahoma. The University of Oklahoma manages the child welfare consortium. Other partners along with Northwestern include East Central University and Oral Roberts University.

Funding for the educational program is provided by Title IV-E of the social security act, called the Child Welfare Training program.

The CWPEP program at Northwestern is administered by Dr. Kylene Rehder, social work department chair. For more information about Northwestern’s social work program, contact Rehder at (580) 327-8135 or kdrehder@nwosu.edu.
