The Clinical Psychology Department Announces New Scholarships & Awards

The Clinical Psychology Department is pleased to announce the establishment of 4 new scholarship awards available to the students in the doctoral program. Award criteria and application deadlines can be found by clicking on the award titles.

The Thalberg Award. Thomas W. Wall, Ph.D. has established this award in honor of Stanton P. Thalberg, Ph.D., mentor and friend. The award will support clinical psychology graduate students who would like to travel to a program, conference, workshop or training to further their education or any special interest such as hypnosis training, psychological assessment, or various psychotherapy techniques. Funding is available up to $1,500 and applicants must be in good standing in their 2nd year or beyond.

Shea Clinical Psychology Research Endowment. Dr. Amy Mezulis, Associate Professor and Director of Research for the Clinical Psychology Department has been at SPU since 2005.  Dr. Mezulis is a faculty mentor and advisor to many doctoral students and is also principal investigor of the A.C.E. Lab (Adolescent Cognition and Emotion Lab) within the School of Psychology, Family and Community. In memory of her uncle, William A. Shea, Dr. Mezulis has established this endowment to assist graduate students in the clinical psychology program with the financial burden incurred in working on their research, travel, and dissertation. There will be 3 awards given this academic year which are: Shea Research Travel Award, Shea Dissertation Research Award, and Shea Developmental Psychopathology Dissertation Excellence Award.

We are proud and thankful to have these benefactors supporting our students..
