With the start of the new academic year comes the good news that recent graduates of Berkeley Social Welfare have been named the recipients of two prestigious awards.

Carly Devlin (MSW ’14), who completed her degree in the health concentration, is the grand prize winner of the American Clinical Social Work Association’s (ACSWA) Judith Holm Memorial Student Awards. The honor includes a $2,000 grant, the publication of Devlin’s paper It’s Like an Addiction in the ACSWA’s upcoming clinical social work journal as well as a $1,000 Snooks Prize grant to the UC Berkeley School of Social Welfare.

Additionally, Devlin, along with fellow Berkeley Social Welfare alumna Kelly Cavolo (MSW ’14), will each receive the California Social Work Education Center (CalSWEC) and California Association of Deans and Directors of Schools of Social Work (CADD)’s Final Student Research Awards for MSW students.

The $500 awards recognize  Devlin’s research on Commercially Sexually Exploited Minors’ Experience with Community-Based Services in Alameda County and Cavolo’s work entitled, A Comparison between Justice-Involved and Non-Justice-Involved Commercially Sexually Exploited Foster Youth in Alameda County.
