The Department of Psychology, the Dean of the College of Liberal Arts, and the Office of Student Financial Assistance have selected Emily because she meets this criteria and has gone above and beyond as a doctoral student.     This scholarship was established to honor the work of Dr. Marty Amerikaner and his contributions to the university, the psychology department, and to the many students that he advocated for to establish a quality training program for clinical psychologists.
