Student Multiculturalism Award

Pennsylvania Psychological Association Student Multiculturalism Award
            The Pennsylvania Psychological Foundation in collaboration with the Pennsylvania Psychological Association’s Committee on Multiculturalism established a Student Multiculturalism Award in 2010.            
The $300 award will be given to a psychology student who is attending school in Pennsylvania and who produced a distinguished psychology related work on issues surrounding multiculturalism, diversity, advocacy, and/or social justice.  The submission may be a formal paper, or other product, such as a notable community service project, work history or other activity that demonstrates considerable sophistication in advancing the field’s understanding of, or ability to positively impact, issues related to diverse populations.             

The submission should include:
  • Description or actual work sample that meets the identified criteria for the award (all documents, including dissertation presentations, must not exceed a 20 page synopsis);
  • A current resume or CV of the nominee;
  • A letter of nomination from student or primary sponsor outlining the qualifications of the individual for the award.          

The deadline for submissions for this award is January 31, and should be e-mailed to:      

Committee on Multiculturalism
Pennsylvania Psychological Association

Harrisburg, PA 17112

The $300 award will be presented at an Awards Ceremony on Friday, during the Pennsylvania Psychological Association’s Annual Convention in Harrisburg, in June.
