The Department of Psychology offers the Norman B. Anderson Research Award to provide for a research opportunity that would otherwise be difficult to achieve with a focus of contributing to, or benefiting from, diversity.
This award will provide $2,000 to assist in the research of one student per year. The funds can be used for any costs associated with a graduate level research project (including, but not limited to, recruitment costs, remuneration, supplies, software packages, local travel*).
- The call for applications will be the beginning of the Fall semester, with the deadline being Sept 30.
- Psychology graduate students in their 2nd year or later at UNCG are eligible to apply.
- Applications are to be no more than 3 pages single spaced. They must include the background for the study, the methods, how diversity is involved, and a proposed budget.
- The NARA committee will make the final decision. The committee (Head, faculty rep, diversity club rep) will be selected each year with a concerted effort to avoid conflicts of interest (i.e., members will only agree to serve if they are not submitting or supervising a submission). The Head will recuse from the decision if involved in a conflict of interest.
Norman B. Anderson, PhD, trained as a clinical psychologist, has had a wide-ranging career as a national leader, first as a scientist and tenured professor studying health disparities and mind/body health, and later as an executive in government, non-profit, and higher education sectors.
