History of the Roberta Kniffley African-American Psychology Scholarship
Alumnus Steven Kniffley (B.A. '08 with Honors) created the Roberta Kniffley African-American Psychology Scholarship in 2009 to provide financial support to outstanding African-American undergraduates pursuing degrees in Psychology. Steven established the scholarship in the name of his grandmother, Roberta Kniffley, to thank her for her years of encouragement and support. Through this scholarship Steven hopes to honor his grandmother and all those who supported him by continuing their commitment to educating and uplifting young scholars. It is Steven's goal that the vision of those who supported him be passed on to future generations.
You can join Steven in honoring those who helped you by lending your financial support to the scholarship. Please visit our Giving Opportunities page for information about how you can make a gift to the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences that will go toward supporting the scholarship.
