Outstanding Scholarship is essential to the mission of The Association of Black
Psychologists (ABPsi). Accordingly, the Student Research Award annually
recognizes outstanding research conducted by a student. An independent
committee will evaluate all submissions and select one student to receive $750
for the most outstanding student award. SAGE has also agreed to cover the travel
expenses for the student to attend and possibly present at the convention in
Oakland, CA at the 50 th Anniversary of ABPsi (June 27 th –July1 st ).
The Stephen C. Rose Scholarship for Psychology Research on African American Youth
The Association of Black Psychologists is proud to offer The Stephen C. Rose Scholarship for Psychology Research on African American Youth. Established by The Steve Fund, this scholarship is in memory of Stephen C. Rose whose passions included psychology, in which he attained a graduate degree. It seeks to encourage and promote research on psychological challenges confronting African American youth. This is an area of study which needs greater attention, particularly given the impact of societal issues such as racism, which have a negative effect on the mental health of African American youth.
The Steve Fund has established this award in recognition of the inspiration Stephen gave to all of those who knew him. Stephen was a young African American man who lived life with courage, determination, and compassion. He cared deeply about the well-being of others, therefore this fund was created by his family and friends to promote the mental and emotional well-being of young people of color.
