Kenneth and Mamie Phipps Clark
Mentoring Award

In 2005, the Ethnic Minority Pipeline committee established the Kenneth and Mamie Phipps Clark Mentoring Award. Part of our mission is to introduce ethnic minority undergraduate Psychology majors to the professional field of Psychology. Each year, the award is given to an outstanding ethnic minority student in our department who displays a curiosity in research and an interest in applying to graduate school in psychology or related disciplines. The recipient is offered:

  • One-on-one mentoring
  • Research opportunities
  • Financial support for professional development

Recipients of this award are encouraged to participate in research with graduate students and faculty and to present their research at an undergraduate or professional conference. In addition, they are encouraged to be active members of Psi Chi, the national honor society in Psychology.

If you have any questions or concerns about the Ethnic Minority Pipeline or the Kenneth and Mamie Phipps Clark Mentoring Award, please do not hesitate to contact Michelle Johnson, Ph.D. at mjohns13@augusta.edu
