UNO Psychology Scholarships for 2013-14
UNO undergraduates majoring in Psychology who will be enrolled both semesters of the 2013-14 academic year are invited to apply for the following scholarships, which are awarded annually. While students may apply for more than one scholarship, no student will be awarded more than one per year. Applications are due by 5:00 on Friday, April 26, clearly labeled as to the scholarship desired, and submitted to the department secretary, Marie Lee (email@example.com). Students should submit a 1-2 page statement of their qualifications for the specific scholarship and a résumé. One or two letters of recommendation should also be requested from appropriate professional references (i.e., department faculty for academic achievement and research involvement; service organization supervisors or faculty advisors for service). Transcripts need not be submitted as the awarding committee will have access to these. Each scholarship award is for $500 .
1. The Frank Bellinghiere Memorial Scholarship
This scholarship will be awarded on the basis of financial need and academic achievement. Applicants should describe their financial situation (sources of support) to establish need. Alternatively, completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) with results reported to UNO provides sufficient documentation of need. Academic achievement should also be described (e.g., strength of curriculum, GPA, other scholarly activities, career aspirations).
2. The Stephen R. Paige Memorial Scholarship
(same basis and application procedure as The Frank Bellinghiere Memorial Scholarship)
3. The Mary E. Flannigan Memorial Research Scholarship
This scholarship will be awarded on the basis of involvement in research. Applicants should describe research activities such as assisting in faculty labs, independent study projects, senior thesis, conference presentations, and/or publications.
4. The Mary E. Flannigan Memorial Service Scholarship
This scholarship will be awarded on the basis of department, university, and community service. Applicants should describe both campus and community service activities. Leadership positions are especially worthy of note.
