The Psychology Research Fund
The Psychology Research Fund was established by Professor Emeritus Roy Hopkins in the early 1990s to support student research efforts in psychology, especially travel to present at conferences. Grants from this fund support may support students’ original research or involvement in directed research and typically do not exceed $200. There is a limited amount of money currently available in the fund.
How to Apply
Current St. Mary’s psychology students wishing to apply for support should complete the Department of Psychology Research Funding Application form and submit it to the academic program coordinator, Angela Draheim.
The Bucknam-Glidden Fund
This fund formerly known as the “Students to Professional Conferences Fund” was originally established by Distinguished Professor Emerita Laraine Glidden to support student travel to present psychology research at conferences. Elaine Bucknam, Class of 2016, received a $5,000 grant from Psi Chi, the international honor society in psychology, to reimburse expenses associated with the conduct of her senior project. Unspent monies were contributed to the renamed Bucknam-Glidden Current Fund. Grants from this fund support students’ original research only and do not exceed $200.
