Thank you, we appreciate your help.

Your contribution will be used to help maintain and improve our programs for undergraduate and graduate students, including those devoted to promoting high-quality research, teaching, and service.

  1. Supporting undergraduate education and career success
    Psychology is one of the most popular majors on campus and our undergraduates often have multiple competing demands for their time (school, work, family). Funds are needed to support tuition scholarships, small grants for research and conference travel, and internships to ease economic burdens on students and help them prepare for careers. Our newest initiative, the UPSI (Undergraduate Psychology Service Internship), provides students $1200 per semester so that they may reduce their work hours to pursue their professional interests and get vital work experience with nonprofit and industry partners.
  2. Supporting graduate students
    Your donations help support vital research assistantships and competitively awarded small grants that allow graduate students to conduct cutting-edge independent research.
  3. Keeping our excellent faculty members and supporting science with impact
    The continued success of our rising national ranking depends on attracting and retaining excellent faculty and supporting their research. Your contribution can directly support faculty research on such vital topics as suicide prevention, childhood stress, driving safety, moral development, relationships and health, psychological well-being, parenting, and aging.
  4. Psychology and U Lecture Series
    A new lecture series designed to promote understanding of psychological research and its contributions to society debuted in October 2016. Your contributions can help ensure the success and the future of this series and its contributions to the public's understanding of psychological science.
