Scholarships for Psychology Graduate Students
SCHOLARSHIPS FOR KENTUCKY RESIDENTS
Dotson Graduate Scholarship
For incoming and current school and clinical graduate students.
Dr. Elsie Dotson was a clinical psychologist and a member of Western's Psychology Department from 1960 until her retirement in 1986. Upon her death in 1989, a portion of her estate was used to create a scholarship for a psychology graduate student. Those of us who knew Elsie remember her with great affection and respect. She was a superb teacher and clinical psychologist. She was strongly committed to the education and welfare of our students, as is shown by the scholarship she endowed.
The Dotson scholarship is typically around $600. Dr. Dotson wished the selection committee to consider both academic merit and financial need in determining who receives the scholarship. Please take the time to provide relevant information on the application forms for the committee to consider in making this important decision.
