American Psychological Foundation Graduate Student Scholars Announced

Ten graduate students are $1,000 "to the good" today, thanks to the American Psychological Foundation (APF) graduate research scholarships. The scholars were selected from a field of nearly 100 by a distinguished panel of scientists representing the Council of Graduate Departments of Psychology (COGDOP).

"APF is proud to be able to support these fine young scientists in the beginning stages of their careers," said APF President Joseph D. Matarazzo, PhD.

The scholarships represent APF's continuing commitment to promoting psychological awards, scholarships, and other activities. The funds will be used by the students in different ways, but many will use the money to defray tuition, help support their dissertation research, or travel to present a paper at a scientific meeting.

The students were selected by a panel of COGDOP representatives, including Tom DiLorenzo, PhD (Panel Chair), University of Missouri; Deborah Best, PhD, Wake Forest University; Ruth Maki, PhD, North Dakota State University; and Richard McCarty, PhD, University of Virginia.

The competition will be held again in 1996, with an expected deadline date of mid-June. For information, please contact Patti Townsend in the Science Directorate at (202) 336-6000.
