Background Information

Rich was a student in our department and a Psi Chi member. The scholarship was created after his death in order to further the academic careers of students in honor of what we assume Rich would have accomplished. Before his death he had decided to stay at ECSU for another semester to strengthen his grad school applications. Psi Chi members can apply for scholarship money to defer costs related to furthering their education. This could be for GRE costs, graduate school application fees or other financial commitments related to applying to graduate school, membership fees for Psi Chi, etc. There are a few pictures of Rich above.


The application is for 2016 is due Friday, April 14th. The application is available here and when completed, should be submitted to Dr. Dracobly (
