Three undergraduates majoring in psychology at Illinois named 2022 Community-Academic Scholars


Psychology majors Maria Becerra, Gabrielle (Gabby) Calderon, and Rachel Sun are among the 2022 awardees for the Community-Academic Scholars Initiative. The program supports the work of undergraduate students “to address critical issues related to health, poverty, and/or social inequality.” The research produced by community-academic scholars is designed to directly benefit the communities they work in. The 10-week program seeks to enhance students’ research skills with work supported by faculty mentors.

Congratulations to these talented psychology students working to improve the lives of people in our community.
