Psi Chi is an international honor society whose purpose shall be to encourage, stimulate, and maintain excellence in scholarship of the individual members in all fields, particularly in psychology, and to advance the science of psychology.
Psi Chi is an honor society based on your hard work and achievements in psychology. We do not want financial concerns to come between excellent students and Psi Chi at UC Santa Cruz.
We will award a scholarship to one student per quarter to waive the UC Santa Cruz chapter fee, and pay the Psi Chi International member dues.
1. You must satisfy all membership requirements
2. Complete the online application through Psi Chi International
3. Submit your unofficial transcripts from all colleges you have attended
4. Write a 1-2 page essay addressing your background and experience as a psychology student, why you would like to be a part of Psi Chi, and why you deserve this scholarship. Please make sure to include your name, GPA, and email address.
All scholarship applications must be turned in with a complete Psi Chi, UCSC application on the posted application due date of the standard application, to the Psi Chi box in Social Sciences 2.
This is a need based scholarship, so we respectfully insist that students who can afford the membership fee do not apply.
