The JDP Diversity’s Recruitment/Retention and Mentorship Subcommittee was selected by the American Psychological Association of Graduate Students (APAGS) as one of the recipients of the 2019 Student Diversity Initiative Award! The purpose of this grant is to support the recruitment, retention and/or the leadership training of doctoral students in psychology or closely related programs of diverse backgrounds. 

This subcommittee will use its $3,000 initiative award to cultivate and maintain a diverse student body within the doctoral program and clinical psychology at large. The goals will be met via committee initiatives focused on recruitment, retention, mentorship and leadership – for example diversity aimed events, mentoring potential applicants, and hosting a diversity mixer during interviews.
