Child Welfare Professional Enhancement Program
The Child Welfare Professional Enhancement Program (CWPEP) is a title IV-E partnership between the University of Oklahoma, The Oklahoma Department of Human Services, and the US Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Children and Families.
The purpose of this partnership is to enhance and support Oklahoma's public child welfare workforce. It affords interested students financial support by covering books, fees, and in-state tuition in return for a specified employment obligation in a Child Welfare position with the Oklahoma Department of Human Services (DHS) or a Tribe with which DHS has a Tribal/State Agreement. This commitment is 12 (BSW) or 15 (MSW) months for each academic year of financial support.
