Graduate student Joy Taylor awarded NASP Scholarship
For the second year in a row, a University of Delaware graduate student in the College of Education and Human Development has won the prestigious National Association of School Psychologist Education and Research Trust (NASP-ERT) minority scholarship for graduate training in school psychology. Joy Taylor, a second-year graduate student pursuing her Master’s degree in School Psychology, was announced as one of three recipients in 2015.
Taylor is a research assistant for Marika Ginsburg-Block, a professor in the School of Education. Her work has included examining early childhood literacy programs that support the involvement of dual language components. At the 2015 NASP Annual Convention, Taylor presented a poster on the family and home elements of her research.
The NASP-ERT Minority Scholarship Program was established in 1995 by Deborah P. Crockett to support the graduate training of minority students pursuing careers in school psychology. The program lowers financial barriers to make training more accessible, while highlighting the accomplishments of promising future professionals.
