SCHOLARSHIPS FOR PSYCHOLOGY MAJORS

The Department of Psychology is pleased to announce two important scholarship opportunities for psychology majors who will be juniors or seniors next year.

 

The Dr. John Knox Hall, Jr. Scholarship of the Pittsburgh Foundation was created in memory of Dr. Hall, a psychology faculty member. It is expected that three awards will be made for next year.

  • Junior or senior status by fall 2017;
  • Overall QPA of 3.5 or higher as of the end of the fall term of 2016;
  • Plans for a career in psychology.
