Newbrough Graduate Award
Each year the Department of Human and Organizational Development acknowledges the year's best scholarly work by a graduate student with the Newbrough Graduate Award. The prize consists of $100 and special consideration for publication in the Journal of Community Psychology. All students in the Community Research Action doctoral program, the Community Development Action program, or the Human Development Counseling master's programs are eligible for the award and encouraged to apply. Completed dissertations, thesis and empirical papers (thesis equivalent), or particularly strong conference-related works will be considered. Entries will be judged by a faculty-student award committee every April. The submission deadline is April 1.
