The Owen Scott Scholars Award is given annually to recognize outstanding student scholarship and to provide monetary support for student research in the Department of Educational Psychology. Eligible students are those in programs in the department and those who have not been previously awarded the honor.

How to Apply

Applications are typically received in the spring of the academic year through an annual call from the department's graduate coordinator. Interested students should submit a current curriculum vita, a University of Georgia transcript, and a two-page, double-spaced letter addressed to the Owen Scott Committee. This letter should emphasize:

  • The candidate's scholarly contributions, which might include scholarly applied work, during their training at the University of Georgia, and
  • How the candidate would use the monetary award to support their research
