Make a Difference for Psychology Students

Psychology Fund

This fund provides money for special opportunities or extraordinary needs.

  • Faculty and students can travel to a conference to present their research.
    This is particularly important for the Psychology Department, which has a thriving undergraduate research program, but often has to watch students refuse the opportunity to present their work at regional and national conferences because they cannot afford travel expenses. Please help!
  • Faculty can take part in a special opportunity to update their skills.  Professors need to be aware of the latest developments in their field, so that they can pass this knowledge on to their students.
  • The department can purchase special equipment, test materials, resources, or training modules to help our students attain success and achieve their goals.

Scholarship Funds

Currently, the Psychology Department does not have any targeted scholarships. You could be the first to create a scholarship fund one that targets psychology students. As the principle donor, you would get to name the fund and establish the selection criteria.
