Featured projects you can support

Psychology Inclusive Excellence Student Fund

Applying to an undergraduate or graduate program can be overwhelming – and students from disadvantaged backgrounds face even more challenges, including less access to opportunities, mentorship and peer support. Empower psychology students today with a gift to the UBC Department of Psychology Inclusive Excellence Student Fund. Established by faculty, alumni and staff, the fund provides critical support to undergraduate and graduate students who have overcome historical, persistent or systemic marginalization to achieve academic excellence.

Your gift will help fund research assistant positions and provide recipients with critical learning opportunities to work directly with faculty researchers in a psychology laboratory. Together, we can create a more equitable, diverse and inclusive psychology department community for the benefit of all.

Centre for Gambling Research

The Centre for Gambling Research at UBC studies cognitive, behavioural, clinical and neuroscience aspects of gambling, and was established to advance the understanding of the psychology of gambling in order to reduce the harms associated with problem gambling and improve evidence-based gambling policy.

Dr. Michael Quinn Foundation Memorial Endowment

The Quinn Endowment funds a number of programs, including the annual Quinn Memorial Lecture which showcases some of the most innovative psychology research from renowned experts, and the Quinn Exchange Fellowship which allows graduate students to work at comparable research labs anywhere in the world for up to a year.

UBC Psychology Clinic Fund

The UBC Psychology Clinic is an outpatient mental health and state-of-the-art training clinic at the University of British Columbia. With donor support, we can continue improving the research-informed psychology services that we provide to many individuals who are facing mental illness. Donations would help ensure that our trainee therapists can access specialized training materials and courses in order to best serve our clients.

Stanley Coren Prize in Psychology

The Stanley Coren Prize has been endowed by Dr. Stanley Coren, Professor Emeritus in UBC’s Department of Psychology. The prize is awarded on the recommendation of the department to a graduate student presenting an outstanding Master’s thesis in psychology.
