To honor the memory of Dr. Eleanor E. Kemp, a founding member of the
Center for Gender Studies and a dedicated teacher in the Department
of Psychology for many years, a fund to encourage and support
undergraduate and graduate student research scholarship has been
established. Awards will be made as incentives to complete promising research
proposals made by undergraduate or graduate students in the Psychology Department
or those working on psychology-related topics. Particular emphasis will be given to
supporting projects that will result in the presentation of findings
at professional meetings and/or their publication in scholarly journals.
Awards from the fund may support the costs of travel to conferences,
or of supplies and other expenses of carrying out the research. Awards
may range from $25 to $250.
Since Dr. Kemp's own field of expertise was experimental social psychology,
special--but not exclusive--emphasis will be given to student projects
in that area. Emphasis will also be given to topics related to
gender and/or women.
