The life of a college student today includes facing new challenges, incorporating new classroom settings online and in person, and working outside of school to keep up with financial demands in an ever-increasing economy, which can be very overwhelming! What can you do to help? You can donate to the Psi Chi Student of the Year Scholarship. This scholarship award will help alleviate some of that financial stress and allow students to focus on their education instead of picking up an extra shift at work. Any amount donated will help make the juggling act a little easier for one deserving psychology student.
What does the award entail?
The Psi Chi Student of the Year Scholarship is an award of $1,000.00 given to a current member of the CSU Chico chapter of the Psi Chi International Honors Society. As current members, they have already demonstrated their commitment to excellence in education by maintaining a 3.50 or better GPA. This scholarship is awarded each academic year to recognize the recipients' hard work and relieve some financial burdens.
Why are donations necessary, and how will they be used?
Living expenses, and school supplies for college students, continually increase, and they need our help. All donations will go to the Psi Chi Student of the Year Scholarship fund. Your donation of any amount goes directly to this fund with two primary goals. First, our scholarship is to give a deserving student an annual scholarship of $1,000.00. This scholarship money can help assist with student expenses like:
- $50 toward gas
- $100 parking
- $150 toward textbooks
- $200 toward groceries
- $350 toward rent
With financial contributions like yours, in the future, we will be able to increase the award amount and even offer awards to multiple deserving psychology students like Tiffany Sanders, the 2022-2023 Psi Chi Student of the Year Scholarship recipient!
