The Psychology Department at the University of Oregon is pleased to announce the availability of First Year Fellowships for successful applicants to our Ph.D. program in the Fall 2018 admissions cycle.  These prestigious fellowships provide first-year graduate students with a nine-month stipend to allow focus on research, and release students from teaching responsibilities during the first three academic terms in the program.  The First Year Fellowships also cover health insurance and all student fees.  Following the First-Year Fellowship, students will receive an additional 4 years of funding through Graduate Teaching or Research Fellowships. No special application for the Fellowship is required; a limited number of First Year Fellowships will be awarded to the most outstanding applicants based on excellence and promise.  Congratulations to our First Year Fellowship Recipients for 2017-18:  Alexis Adams-Clark, Heather Anderson, Cianna Bedford-Petersen, Samantha Chavez and Yoel Everett.  Recipients for 2016-17 were Krista DeStasio, Maxwell Drascher, Sarah Horn, Melissa Moss, and Karlena Ochoa.

Congratulations to Tamara Niella as the recipient of a 2017-18 Promising Scholar Award.  For 2016-17, recipients were Elizabeth Loi, Karlena Ochoa, and Seyed Pooya Razavi Ghahfarokhi. These prestigious awards are designed to help recruit outstanding new graduate students of diverse backgrounds and experiences to advance the inclusive excellence of our graduate program and the University of Oregon as a whole.  The award includes a direct $5,000 award to the incoming student, as well as two years of tuition support.  Promising Scholar Awards will be made again in 2018-19, and the Department of Psychology will nominate up to 5 students for this award.
