What Does it Mean to Be an Emerging Scholar?

What do student researchers really gain from being a part of the Emerging Scholars Fellowship? One of our 2015 scholars, Jessica Harvath-Hilgeman, took the time to share with us why she valued her experiences with the Fellowship and the impact it had on her as a student researcher.

Jessica maintains a blog called “Adventures in the Psychology of Mind and Body”, and recently had an article published in the November 2015 issue of Psychology Today. Learn more about Jessica’s fellowship project here.

The 2016 cycle of the Emerging Scholars Fellowship will be announced in the next coming weeks. Visit us online at to learn more about our next group of changemakers.
