The Fujita Family Fund for Graduate Student Support
Byron N. Fujita received his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from University of Washington in 1977. Committed to serving those in need, Byron worked in various capacities in the public sector providing services for substance abuse, corrections, and severely mentally ill clients. As part of a family of Huskies, Byron strongly valued his time at the forward-thinking University of Washington and has pledged his support to provide this same opportunity for students today. The Fujita Family Fund for Graduate Student Support will provide broad-based direct financial support to graduate students in the Clinical Psychology Program within the Department of Psychology. The UW Psychology Department thanks Byron and the Fujita family for their thoughtful gift and we look forward to honoring their commitment to public service through this fund.

On May 26, 2017, the Department of Psychology recognized outstanding graduate and undergraduate students who received endowed scholarships and fellowships this year, as well as the supporters who made the awards possible, at our Inaugural Awards Luncheon. Faculty, staff, students, and friends of the Psychology Department gathered at the UW Waterfront Activities Center to celebrate the students' achievements and the impactful work made possible by the generosity of the awards' endowers. Some students had the unique opportunity to thank the benefactors of their awards in person: Brianna Yamaksaki and Valerie Tryon, recipients of the 2017 Earl Hunt Graduate Fellowship created by the late former UW Psychology professor Earl "Buz" Hunt and his wife Mary Lou, expressed their gratitude to Mary Lou for helping to bring their work to life. Congratulations to our awardees and thank you to our generous supporters!
Your contributions are very much appreciated as they have provided tremendous support for our students and many new and exciting Department initiatives. Keep an eye out for updates as your contributions are put to work! Names appear in alphabetical order.
