Giving Blueday

Our focus for Giving Blueday is supporting undergraduate and graduate student research opportunities.

Psychology Undergraduate Student Research Fund

Well over 500 Psychology undergraduate students engage in research projects with faculty every year and many report that doing research was one of the most valuable experiences during their undergraduate years. Contributions to the Undergraduate Student Research Fund will help support these projects by covering the costs for summer internships, research supplies, travel to research sites, scientific poster and publication costs and other costs associated with cutting-edge research.

Your generous support will help our students build their research skills and improve their readiness for competitive graduate programs, jobs in industry and other professional career paths.

Psychology Graduate Student Support Funding

Graduate students collaborate with faculty-led research teams and play a vital role in scientific research and discovery. Contributions to the Graduate Student Research Fund provide support for summer fellowship, additional training opportunities, travel to research sites, attendance at scientific meetings, dissertation research, and other costs associated with cutting-edge research.

Your generous support will help us recruit and retain top-notch young scientists and prepare them to chart the future of psychological science.

Other Giving Opportunity

Psychology Strategic Fund

Overall, this fund is an excellent way to make an investment in the future of the Department of Psychology.

The ability to respond in a timely manner is critical to any organization. The strategic fund provides resources for the department's focused initiatives such as:

  • The creation of new undergraduate courses
  • Purchase of specialized equipment for new courses
  • Focused response to innovative opportunities to build on faculty talents, such as joint/interdisciplinary hires with Women's Studies, School of Engineering, and Neuroscience.
  • Recruitment and retention of the best faculty and graduate students through the development of new research projects. (New projects need pilot data that is often not eligible for federal and nonfederal grant support.)

The strategic fund provides resources for the department's focused initiatives and provides support for undergraduates, graduates, faculty, and staff.
