  3. Good afternoon. My name is Veronique Grice and I have worked in child welfare for many years in a “social worker” capacity. I have read over the qualifications; however, I am still very interested in this fellowship. If you tell me that only “social workers” will be considered then I will not apply; however, is that a chance for a person with a “clinical psychology” degree with extensive social welfare experience to be considered? Please advise.

    Thank you
