Who Can Apply: Graduate students enrolled in an interim master’s program or doctoral program are eligible to apply. If a student is currently enrolled in a terminal master’s program, the student must intend to enroll in a PhD program. Students at any stage of graduate study are encouraged to apply. The purpose of the scholarship program is to assist graduate students of psychology with research costs associated with the master’s thesis or doctoral dissertation.
A 3-page maximum letter of recommendation from the nominee’s graduate research advisor, with original signature. Please do not submit more than one letter of recommendation; only the letter of recommendation from the nominee’s graduate research advisor will be forwarded for review. Copies of the letter should be included in the same application packet with the rest of the materials. All application materials must arrive together in one packet.
A 3-page maximum brief outline of the nominee’s thesis or dissertation research project (even if in progress). Outlines may be single or double-spaced and margin sizes are at the discretion of each applicant. The 3-page outline may include up to 2 additional pages of references. We encourage you to use your best judgment on the format and content of your application, and to get your advisor’s feedback on a draft of the entire application packet before completing it.
