The Next-Gen Psych Scholars Program (NPSP) is a virtual graduate student-led mentorship program for underrepresented (e.g., BIPOC, low-income, first-gen, LGBTQIA+) undergraduates and post-baccalaureates interested in applying to psychology PhD programs.
NPSP believes that cultivating diverse teams of scientists to tackle today’s most pressing societal issues would not only improve the science—it would bring a voice to underprivileged and marginalized communities through the scientists who have themselves grown up in those communities. Diversifying the next generation of psychologists will enhance the questions we ask, the methods we use to capture diverse lived experiences, and ensure that the conclusions we draw are rooted in context and integrity.
The Next-Gen Psych Scholars program aims to cultivate long-term support structures between current underrepresented psych PhD students and diverse undergrad or post-bacc mentees to:
