Psychology Undergraduate Community Impact Award
The Psychology Undergraduate Community Impact Award celebrates Psychology students who take what they learn in their major to address diverse societal issues and concerns in practice.
Psychology major undergraduate students are a talented, creative, and compassionate group who make broad-ranging contributions to society through civic engagement, including application of psychological science. Their work outside the classroom advances their academic development, knowledge, skill sets, and career goals, but also benefits the local community and broad society. This award recognizes significant student achievements in activities that benefit the local or broader community. The range of activities may extend from work with organizations and efforts that aim to address and improve mental health to engagement with education, arts, non-profit or related groups to a variety of other experiences. Priority consideration will be given to students whose applications demonstrate involvement and impact outside of academic research or lab experience.
