Congratulations Eastern Washington University student Samantha Sanchez! Samantha has been selected as an EWU McNair Scholar and awarded a summer research internship. McNair Scholars must have a GPA of 3.0 or higher, are first generation college students and low-income and/or underrepresented students, and are selected for their promise as scholars and commitment to attaining a PhD. Samantha is majoring in Psychology with an emphasis in communication, sociology, and industrial/organizational psychology. She is also working on Eastern’s Inclusion and Diversity certificate and in the process of becoming co-president in Psi Chi, an international honor society in psychology. Samantha is a research assistant in Dr. Jillene Seiver’s clinical psychology lab looking into how the presence of a cell phone may be distracting. Samantha is particularly interested in researching the domestic violence to help bring greater awareness and support to victims and potential victims. Dr. Seiver will continue to mentor Samantha during her 2020 EWU McNair Summer Research Internship studying this topic. Samantha’s goal is to attend graduate school and pursue a career as an Industrial or Organizational Psychologist.
We're so excited to have Samantha join us as a McNair Scholar!
