Undergraduate Financial Aid Opportunities


Undergraduate students should coordinate travel plans with the lab director so that requests can be submitted the CLA Dean or SGA for funding.  These funds are not guaranteed.


The Psychology Department has two endowed scholarships for psychology majors -- the Daniel G. Hays Memorial Scholarship and the Robert E. James Endowed Scholarship.

The Daniel G. Hays Memorial Scholarship, established in memory of a former Associate Professor of Psychology, may be awarded to an advanced undergraduate or graduate student enrolled in the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences. Students must have earned a high school diploma or college degree and have demonstrated leadership potential, along with participation in community and professional activities. Financial need is also a consideration.

Established in the fall semester of 2000 is the Robert E. James Endowed Scholarship. This scholarship is aimed at undergraduate psychology students at the beginning of their academic career. Students must have declared a psychology major and have completed six hours of introductory psychology at UAH or be currently enrolled in their second UAH psychology course (e.g., PY 102 or PY 201). In addition to having at least a 3.00 grade point average, students should be active in extracurricular or volunteer work. Financial need will be a determining factor for individuals with excellent scholarship and activities. Completed applications are due by December 1 in the Office of Financial Aid.
