The two awards listed below are awarded annually in the spring to Psych majors based on faculty nomination. If you believe you qualify for one of these awards when they are announced in the Psych Undergrad Weekly Bulletin, please talk to your faculty adviser.
Alvhh Lauer Award
Dr. Lauer, a long-time member of the Department, bequeathed funds to finance an annual monetary award (typically $300-$500) to the outstanding senior with a commitment to applied psychology. Criteria include scholastic achievement, involvement in research and/or practica activities, and a post-graduate commitment to applied psychology.
Thomas A. Hannum Undergraduate Award
Dr. Hannum was a long-time member of the Department and Psych Club/Psi Chi Adviser. In recognition of his contributions to undergraduates, a scholarship was established when he retired. An annual scholarship of about $100 is awarded to a junior Psych major with a very strong record of citizenship and service in the department as demonstrated by the student's involvement with Psych Club, Psi Chi, and VEISHEA.
