The new fellowship named in her honor will provide financial support for doctoral training to psychology students who will continue to make an impact on the field and community. All donations will honor Dr. Nelson-Gray’s 50+ years of transformational dedication to UNCG, her students, and the community, by providing scholarship support for the next generation of psychology doctoral students who will continue in her footsteps. The fellowship goal is to reach $500,000 in donations in order to establish a permanent $20,000 doctoral fellowship to be awarded annually.
