Richard Bronson Memorial Scholarship


Rich Bronson is on the far left in the group picture.                   

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 due no later than the second Friday of April each year.  The application is updated each year by the end of the fall semester.  Here is a link to the application
