The application packet must have the student’s curriculum vitae, a proposal abstract that addresses the criteria, which has been outlined by the American Psychological Foundation and a letter of recommendation from the student’s adviser that includes verification of the nomination criteria listed. This letter of recommendation should cover one page maximum.

Scholarship Requirements
