The Department of Psychological Sciences established the Lizette Peterson-Homer Graduate Fellowship Fund to honor the former Curators’ Professor’s (1951–2002) devotion to teaching and mentoring. The memorial fund provides financial assistance for graduate student development in these areas: research activities, specialty training at other institutions, and travel to professional conferences as a way to allow students to obtain these important experiences without the potential hindrance of personally incurring these costs. In awarding the funds, special consideration will be given to graduate students who are pursuing study in the area of pediatric psychology and especially in child injury-prevention research, an important, yet under-funded, area to which Lizette Peterson-Homer was deeply committed.
