The Pope Francis Scholars Compass Program:
The Compass Program is comprised of ten students who have qualified and received a scholarship from Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Washington to attend the School of Social Work at Catholic University of America. During their time as students they will complete their field placement at Catholic Charities working on the Compass Program. After graduating, the interns will work as employees of Catholic Charities.
Students who are accepted as COMPASS Partners are active participants in the development and progression of the COMPASS program while gaining valuable hands on experience in the ever changing field of Social Work.
