A special thank you goes out to all who have given of themselves and their resources over the past year to aid the Psychology Department in achieving its goals for education, research, and service to the community. Together we can make wonderful things happen!

Friends of Psychology (alumni, parents, community partners and others) can provide support for students in several important ways, including funding for professional development and scholarships. Giving in any amount to Professional Development will help provide support for scholarships, student research, conference attendance, and other academically based activities. Opportunities also include support for named scholarships (3-year commitment of $5,000 per year), and endowed scholarships ($25,000 and up).

You may donate any amount to existing named scholarships including:
The Dr. Edward Geldreich Memorial Scholarship
The Marjorie S. and Merle B. Turner Endowed Scholarship
