Penn State Penn State: College of the Liberal Arts

The Strumpf Scholar Award

The Linda Brodsky Strumpf Liberal Arts Centennial Graduate Endowment provides funds to support graduate students in the Department of Psychology’s Child Study Center. Linda Brodsky Strumpf and Jonathan A. Strumpf created this fund in 2009. Both are 1969 Penn State graduates. One funding mechanism of this endowment is the Strumpf Scholar Award, which was first created in 2011.

The Strumpf Scholar Award recognizes outstanding performance and excellence in graduate studies in areas of research aligned with the Child Study Center.  Students who receive the Strumpf Scholar Award show innovation and promise in their own research, often have multiple lines of research, and have begun the process of sharing this work with the child psychology research community via presentations and often publications.

The Strumpf Scholar Award is designed to promote graduate research productivity by supplementing graduate assistantships and providing selected students with additional support to enhance their research and professional development.  Recipients of this award receive two years of support.  This support includes an award similar in amount to summer wages for two years to allow students to focus fully on their research during the summer, and an additional $2,000 to support research-related costs. Research-related costs may include the costs of collecting or analyzing data, eliciting expert consultation, and/or travel support to present research at national or international conferences.
