Congratulations to Tari Nussinov ’20 on being selected for the 2020 Diana List Cullen Memorial First-Year MSW Student Writing Scholarship Award, sponsored by the Metropolitan Chapter of the New York State Society for Clinical Social Work (NYSSCSW)!
Every year, the Met Chapter awards a $500 scholarship and one-year membership to one student from seven participating social work schools in the New York City area in recognition of outstanding clinically-oriented writing done in the first year of their MSW program. Tari’s paper, “DLCP – A Rhodesian Perspective” was recognized for its thoughtful and socio-culturally minded approach to understanding mental health concerns and engagement in care.
She was honored among other scholarship recipients at the awards reception held on Wednesday, November 7 at the Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church in midtown Manhattan where they all presented a synopsis of their papers. We are proud of Tari and honored to have her represent CSSW!
