The Society of Indian Psychologists is proud to offer The Stephen C. Rose Scholarship for Psychology Research on American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian 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 American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian youth. This is an area of study which needs greater attention, particularly given the impact of societal issues such as suicide, historical trauma, and racism, which have a negative effect on the mental health of American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian 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.
$1,000 monetary award + travel stipend to present research at the 2020 SIP Convention.
Graduate or Undergraduate student members of SIP may apply.
