Ethnic and Minority Mentoring Award


The Ethnic and Minority Mentoring Award is awarded for outstanding contributions to the mentoring- of ethnic minority community psychologists in academic settings. It was established in 1991 and is given to a SCRA member who has had a positive impact on an ethnic minority graduate student or beginning level graduate who has consistently fostered a climate in his/her setting conducive to the growth of ethnic minority graduate students and/or beginning level graduates. The goal of the award is to acknowledge the importance of encouraging ethnic diversity within community psychology and supporting the efforts of groups of individuals who have been historically more limited in their access to higher education within our field.
