2012–13 winner

"As an undergraduate I learned through the classroom and lab about the powerful and devastating effects of stereotypes on people and their daily lives. Fascinated, I knew I wanted to learn more about stereotypes and find ways to thwart the negative effects of stereotypes in my graduate school training.

"Without this grant I would not have been able to run this study in the field. Also, applying for this grant is great experience in learning how the grant application process works in academia. Funding is an important and essential aspect of research and I could not have run my own study without the support of Psi Chi and the Mamie Phipps Clark grant!

"Receiving the Mamie Phipps Clark grant has acted as a first stepping stone in my path toward becoming a researcher and expert in the field of academic motivation and stereotypes.”
