Thursday, March 1, is the deadline to apply for the Department of Psychology Chair’s Minority/Underrepresented Undergraduate Research Grant.

The $500 grant for research expenses is for spring semester.

Eligible students must be racial or sexual/gender minorities who are majoring in psychology. Undergraduate students must have completed at least 24 credit hours, with at least 12 of those being psychology hours.

Those interested must complete an application form and submit two one-page essays — one addressing their commitment to diversity, their background and career goals, and one detailing their research proposals, including how the grant will be used.

We want to help one of these students to accomplish this goal,” said Dr. Mojisola F. Tiamiyu, associate professor of psychology, director of the Community Psychology Research Lab, and chair of the Psychology Department Diversity Committee.

“Our Psychology Department Diversity Committee is looking forward to reviewing applicants’ materials and selecting the best of the best,” she added.
