Eleanor E. Kemp Memorial Research Fund
Funding Criteria      Application Form

          To honor the memory of Dr. Eleanor E. Kemp, a dedicated teacher in the Department of Psychology for many years, a fund was established to encourage and support undergraduate research projects in psychology and psychology-related topics at Radford University.
Fund History

          The fund provides for one or more awards to be given in an academic year. Previously, the awards have been presented in March of the Spring Term, as one of the highlights of the Student Research Conferences on Gender. The awards are presented by Dr. Marie Waters, Professor Emeritus in the Department of Psychology at Radford University. As a life-long colleague and close friend of Eleanor Kemp, Dr. Waters oversaw the establishment of the Eleanor Kemp Fund.  Except for last year, the awards have been presented annually since 1992.
