The Psychology Department at the University of Oregon is pleased to announce the following award recipients:

Congratulations to Moriah Stendel, recipient of a 2018-19 Raymund Fellowship. Fellows are chosen on the basis of outstanding academic achievement, while also considering how they contribute to educational, geographic, gender, racial/ethnic, and other forms of diversity. This award includes a $20,000 stipend for the first academic year and allows the recipient to focus on research.

Congratulations to Ruby Cuellar, Wanjia Guo, and Andrew Zavala, recipients of 2018-19 Promising Scholar Awards. Previous recipients include: 2017-18, Tamara Niella; 2016-17, 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-$6,000 award to the incoming student, as well as two years of tuition support.  Promising Scholar Awards will be made again in 2019-20, and the Department of Psychology will nominate up to 5 students for this award.

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. 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.
