The Department regularly names doctoral student recipients of three types of Fellowships and one teaching award.
Flowerree Summer Research Fellowships support psychology doctoral students in their collaborative research with psychology faculty. These awards are made possible by a former student and long time benefactor, the late Mr. Robert E. Flowerree, a former advisory member of the Tulane Board of Administrators and retired CEO of Georgia-Pacific. Mr. Flowerree provided the department with gifts intended to support faculty research. Beginning in 2016, the faculty began awarding summer support to all PhD students in their first and second years (allowing deferments for students supported on grants).
