Social Workers Advancing through Grounded Education (SAGE): Building Capacity for Mental and Behavioral Health in Indian Country

The SAGE project will recruit, train, and financially support Native and non-Native students as they complete 360 hours of their concentration practica.

Please read if you are currently an MSW student looking for a paid practicum opportunity for 360 hours of your concentration practica.

The Kathryn M. Buder Center for American Indian Studies at the Brown School has developed strong relationships with American Indian & Alaska Native experts in the fields of mental and behavioral health across the Nation. The SAGE Grant, offered by the Buder Center, supports MSW students in completing practica focused on at-risk children, adolescents, OR transitional age Native youth. Through SAGE, the Buder Center provides paid practicums within Indian Country while building capacity for culturally-informed mental and behavioral health treatment for Native populations. 

If you are interested in learning more about this opportunity and working in mental or behavioral health in Indian Country, please read the attached brochure and contact the SAGE Research Assistant, Lindsey Manshack​ with any questions.
