Scholarship established for Northwestern-Enid psychology students

(ENID, Okla. March 9, 2017) – The Enid Friends of Psychology Scholarship has been established by the Enid Psychology Club at Northwestern Oklahoma Enid Psychology ClubState University to provide financial assistance to Enid-area undergraduate psychology students.

“Dr. Wayne McMillin [dean, Enid campus] started this scholarship many years ago,” said Leigh Kirby, instructor of psychology and current Enid Psychology Club sponsor. “He was the sponsor for the club and wanted to help students with scholarships. Funds have been raised numerous different ways, from large fundraisers to small. The support we’ve received from community agencies and individuals is amazing. Any money collected went toward the Enid Friends of Psychology Scholarship.”

The Enid Psychology Club was founded in 1987 under the supervision of McMillin. Since its inception, it has been one of the most successful student organizations on the Enid campus and has thrived because of the efforts of many. The Psychology Club activities and events have included hundreds of Northwestern-Enid students whose legacy has had a tremendous impact on the personal growth of the student body and fulfilled many civic projects to benefit the citizens of Enid and the surrounding areas.

“It is exciting to see another scholarship created through the persistence and hard work of many passionate Rangers,” said Skeeter Bird, Northwestern Foundation & Alumni Association CEO. “This scholarship will be a lasting tribute for the students, teachers and community supporters who collectively labored to make this dream a reality. “

Kirby said the scholarship will continue to provide incentive and motivation to help students pursue the field of psychology.

“Applicants can begin sending in their information starting in March to be eligible for the scholarship,” said Kirby. “The recipient will be named at the Enid Recognition Ceremony on May 4 and will be awarded for the fall 2017 semester.”

Full-time junior and senior students at the Enid campus majoring in psychology with a minimum 3.0 cumulative grade point average are eligible for the Enid Friends of Psychology Scholarship. Applicants must complete the scholarship application form through the financial aid office on the Enid campus. The scholarship may be applied toward university-related expenses, including tuition, fees, books, room and board.
