The Human Resources Research Organization (HumRRO) is pleased to sponsor the Meredith P. Crawford Fellowship in Industrial-Organizational (I-O) Psychology.

HumRRO Fellowship

A non-renewable $12,000 stipend will be awarded to a graduate student demonstrating exceptional research skills. The recipient will be required to progress satisfactorily towards the completion of the dissertation and present his/her research during a visit to HumRRO. Additional opportunities to interact with HumRRO staff may be provided. The financial award will be distributed across two payments (September and December).


To be eligible for consideration, an applicant must be a doctoral candidate in I-O Psychology or a closely related discipline whose dissertation topic has been proposed and approved by his/her graduate faculty. Since one of the purposes of the Fellowship is to provide financial support while the student completes his/her dissertation, applicants should be actively involved in the process of completing their dissertation research but not substantially completed or finished at the time of application.


Applicants will be evaluated on the basis of their research promise, academic achievement, and professional productivity. Finalists may be interviewed.

Application Process

Each applicant must provide HumRRO:

  • Completed application form

  • Personal statement

  • Three completed recommendation forms

  • Official transcript from each institution attended for graduate academic work

  • Various application materials may arrive under separate covers, but must arrive on or before the deadline
