Educational Psychology Students Earn APA Fellowships

Three Educational Psychology master’s students, Patricia Kottaridis, Amy Blum, and Komal Sawani, received fellowships totaling $18,000 from the American Psychological Association’s (APA’s) Minority Fellowship Program. The Minority Fellowship Program is a federally funded training program for ethnic and racial minority researchers and service providers. 

The program’s Services for Transition Age Youth Fellowship awards terminal master’s students intending to work with transition-age youth (16-25 years old) and their families $6,000 fellowships.  The fellowships are provided through a federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration grant.

In addition to the funding, the students will travel to Washington, D.C., for specialized training during the Psychology Summer Institute.
