Congratulations to Rigdzin Pema Collins ’19 on receiving the 2018 Diana List Cullen Memorial First Year MSW Student Writing Scholarship from the Metropolitan Chapter of the New York State Society for Clinical Social Workers (NYSSCSW)!
Every year, the Society offers a $500 scholarship and year-long membership to one MSW student from each of the six social work schools in New York City in recognition of exceptional clinically-oriented writing done in the first year of their respective programs. Rigdzin’s paper, “Adult Psychology – Case Formulation,” was selected based on her thoughtful and humanistic reflection and approach to working with a client with a hoarding disorder.
Rigdzin was honored among other scholarship recipients at the awards reception held on Wednesday, November 14 at the Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church in midtown Manhattan where they all presented a synopsis of their papers. We are proud of Ridgzin and honored to have her represent CSSW!
