Learn more about your impact

Each year, the Department of Psychology awards merit-based and need-based scholarships to its most deserving students, supporting those pursuing degrees in psychology and neuroscience. These scholarships are designed to reduce financial barriers and provide crucial funding to augment the studies of our students.

In addition, this fund supports graduate students grappling with the impacts of inflation and the limits of graduate funding, aiming to alleviate distress associated with very real financial burdens and help students succeed. Join us in empowering the next generation of psychology and neuroscience leaders.

It means a lot to receive funding — to have alumni who have gone through similar programs and put that trust into young graduate students like myself, saying, 'Hey, continue on this mission.' This gift really advances our careers and hopefully continues the cycle of excellence in research. There's a lot of weight behind these gifts, and we really appreciate it.”
