Psychology Awards and Scholarships
Distinguished Student in Psychology Award
Each year several students are nominated and one is chosen for the Distinguished Student in Psychology Award. The Psychology Department faculty give nominations and select the top student. This is a prestigious and highly respected award. It is presented at a University-wide ceremony in April.
