SplitSimple, a provider of uncontested divorce mediation in Denver, CO, has announced that Amber Franks is the winner of their $500 social work scholarship contest for 2022. She was chosen from 10 finalists from about 70 applications. She was recently accepted into the Master of Social Work (MSW) graduate program at Texas State University. Participants of the scholarship contest had to submit an essay that explains their inspiration for focusing their studies on social work. She is a first generation college student.
The MSW degree program at the Texas State University School of Social Work provides an opportunity for college-degreed individuals who are interested in contributing to the betterment of society. The program is based on a liberal arts perspective and the graduates of this program have been observed to have shown excellent results in the state licensing exams and have gained employment across a broad range of service delivery fields. This program has been fully accredited by the Council on Social Work Education and graduates are eligible for state licensure.
Chris Griffith, founder of SplitSimple, said to Amber Franks, “Your passion for disability justice in support of your sister and commitment to your education left a strong impression on us. We appreciate that mission and wish you the best in pursuit of your MSW.”
The scholarship was established by Chris Griffith as a way to provide some help for students who have chosen to dedicate their lives to helping others by becoming social workers. Applications for the scholarship have to be submitted not later than September 1, and the winner is determined not later than September 20 every year. To be eligible, applicants have to be currently enrolled in a college or university program in the US, must have a GPA of 3.0 or higher at their current university of college, and they must submit an essay on what inspired them to study social work, their unofficial transcript of records, and a letter of recommendation. This is a one-time scholarship of $500 that can help with some of the financial needs of students.
Founded in 2015 by Chris Griffith, SplitSimple provides a better alternative to the conventional divorce process where the inherently stressful situation is further exacerbated by the divorcing couple having to appear in court to face a judge who will make decisions that will significantly affect their lives and the life of their children. In the uncontested divorce process that they offer, their divorce attorney-mediators in Denver and Chicago will work with the couple in a calm and objective manner to resolve the various disagreements and look for a fair and equitable arrangement. This means resolving the usual child care disputes, including child support and child custody arrangements. Their divorce mediators will not be charging by the hours and will be transparent with regards to fees. Statistics indicate that an uncontested divorce process allows the separating couple to save money in the long run compared to the traditional divorce process.
Chris Griffith is the company’s first divorce attorney-mediator. He has a unique range of experience that makes him an invaluable asset for couples who want an uncontested divorce. While he has been trained to be a lawyer, he has also undergone extensive studies in family therapy. He has worked in family and mediation law for several years before establishing SplitSimple. He works in Denver and provides help to clients throughout the state of Colorado. He can also provide remote mediation, allowing him to help clients who live quite far from each other. At SplitSimple, they have been able to conduct remote mediation sessions with clients who live outside of Colorado and even some who reside overseas. They use videoconferencing and screen share software to allow the distant spouse to fully participate in the mediation proceedings.
