The John R. Walker Clinical Research Award
(formerly the Alumni Clinical Psychology Student Research Award)

The John R. Walker Clinical Research Award is awarded to clinical psychology students in the clinical training program to recognize their scholarly and scientific achievements. The alumni and current staff of the Clinical Psychology Training Program and its primary facility, the Psychological Services Centre, established the fund at the University of Manitoba to celebrate the twenty fifth anniversary of its founding. This fund will support prizes which will be offered to recognize the scholarly and scientific achievements of clinical psychology students in the clinical training program. One prize, valued at up to 70 percent of the annual interest on the fund, is to be awarded each year to a graduate student in the Clinical Psychology Training Program on the basis of scholarly and scientific achievements. Recipients must have achieved a minimum grade point average of 3.5 to be eligible for this prize. The recipient of the award is selected by Psychological Service Centre Faculty. The award was announced by Clinical Psychology in 1993 and approved by Senate in January of 1994.
