Carolyn McClain Young Scholarships at Georgia State University

The Carolyn McClain Young Scholarship is open to highly motivated, well-qualified individuals interested in pursuing a doctoral degree in the Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology. Carolyn Young Scholarship recipients will receive a $20,000/year GRA stipend and a full tuition waiver. The scholarship seeks applicants from countries in the Caribbean or the African continent who are leaders or potential leaders of their respective countries. Because these scholarships often go unfilled, we also encourage applicants with recent heritage from these regions. Students may receive the Carolyn McClain Scholarship for up to three years, with the potential for additional funding beyond that with timely and reasonable progress toward the degree. A brief video featuring recent Carolyn McClain Young Scholarship awardees from other AYSPS departments can be viewed here.

The candidates for this award will be selected during the recruitment and admission process, but students should indicate in their personal statements their interest and qualifications for the Carolyn McClain Young Scholarship. Application requirements and procedures are available here, with a deadline for Fall 2018 admission of January 15, 2018.
