Endowed Awards Provide Crucial Support for Grad Students

Endowed funds have been supporting Psychology graduate students for years. These funds have fostered independent research, provided freedom from the workload of an assistantship, and to offset travel costs for a conference. The Psychology department continues to serve and honor these legacies by carefully selecting recipients to receive these awards. The funds can grow and assist more of our students to share their important work with the world.
