2016 Presidential Fellows Announced

The Graduate School has announced the 2016 Presidential Fellows, recipients of the university’s highest award for promise of excellence at the graduate level.

The merit-based Presidential Fellowship program was developed by The Graduate School to increase USC’s competiveness in recruiting outstanding doctoral and MFA applicants. All Presidential Fellows receive a supplemental stipend in addition to teaching and research assistantships from Fellows’ academic programs. Fellows benefit from an innovative series of seminars designed to provide professional development and multidisciplinary community building among scholars in a wide range of research areas. Presidential Fellows are nominated to The Graduate School by graduate directors prior to an applicant’s matriculation at USC. Successful candidates have promising research agendas or creative projects, accomplished academic records, and superior standardized test scores or impressive portfolios.

Please congratulate the Psychology Department's most recent Presidential Fellows:  

Adam Denton, Experimental Psychology

Nicholas Riccardi, Experimental Psychology

Asia Thomas, School Psychology

Carla Wall, School Psychology
