The UF Department of Psychology is home to approximately 100 graduate students who are mentored by 25 of our 39 faculty members. Each semester, our graduate students go above and beyond their potential and earn noteworthy awards that are recognized university-wide and even nationwide. Recently, these graduate students were accepted for awards:
