I serve on the National Fellowships Committee which provides support and institutional endorsement for the nation’s most prestigious fellowships and scholarships. We are currently seeking nominees for the Goldwater Scholarship; see eligibility criteria here.
Although typically focused on students in the natural sciences and engineering, the program specifically identifies psychology as one of the sciences for which students are eligible to apply. Nominees must be U.S. citizens, and currently sophomores or juniors. Competitive applicants typically have a 3.8+ GPA, significant research activity, and a desire to pursue a Ph.D. and research-related career.
Please send me the names of your best students that you think might be interested and competitive for this award.
