    • The Statue Foundation Fellowships to Promote Diversity in Clinical Psychology

      Thanks to the generous support of Alice and Ted Cohn, The New School for Social Research is once again pleased to offer the Statue Foundation Fellowship Program in Clinical Psychology. The goals of the program are to increase the availability of culturally competent mental health services and to increase scientific knowledge of issues related to sociocultural diversity, social justice, and mental health. The fellowship provides funding to incoming or current doctoral students in clinical psychology who are committed to contributing to culturally-engaged research, teaching, or practice that addresses the needs and concerns of underserved communities, including immigrants or refugees, other racial, ethnic, or cultural minorities, low income individuals and families, sexual minorities, individuals with disabilities, etc. In addition, individuals who are interested in basic or clinical research that has clear relevance to such populations are also encouraged to apply.

      The award covers tuition costs for one year. Students in the Statue Foundation Fellowship Program contribute to the education of both their fellow students and faculty in the Clinical Psychology Ph.D. program at The New School, about issues and concerns relevant to populations that are often underrepresented or marginalized in mainstream clinical psychology, e.g., acculturative stress, racism and prejudice, survivor guilt, the effects of torture, the impact of poverty, disparities in mental health care, culturally adapted treatments, etc.

      To fulfill this mission, fellows are expected to (a) organize colloquia, community, and/or departmental events relevant to these topics, (b) conduct at least two presentations (on relevant research or clinical practice topics) to the department, university, or as part of a professional conference, and (c) serve on the psychology department’s diversity committee. The fellowship recipients are also encouraged to collaborate with faculty on research that is both culturally grounded and relevant to the specific concerns and issues of underserved communities. To assist with organizing efforts, students are also encouraged to connect with previously funded Statue Fellows and other divisional and campus organizations related to social justice, such as the Students for Social Justice and the Social Justice Committee.

      Preference is given to applicants who have previously demonstrated a commitment to working with the populations or issues described above and/or who are in the early years of doctoral training. At the end of the award year, fellows must submit an Annual Report describing the activities undertaken to fulfill the requirements of the award. Fellows must maintain good standing in the doctoral program and adhere to program deadlines and requirements.
