Melvin V. Lubman Scholarship

The Melvin V. Lubman Scholarship was established in his memory by his wife, Mrs. Golde Lubman Feldman. Lubman focused his teaching on industrial psychology in his career at VCU. He dedicated his professional life to improving public safety in highways and transportation, as well as accident prevention for public servants such as firefighters, police and waste collection employees. The scholarship honors Lubman’s dedication and service as a professor in the Department of Psychology and is available to undergraduates majoring in psychology. Preference will be given to students with meritorious academic performance who are employed either full- or part-time throughout their enrollment. The scholarship is renewable as long as the recipient remains in good academic standing.

Please note: If the current recipient is renewed per the terms of this scholarship, applications to the current cycle will not be considered. We do encourage applications during each cycle should the current recipient not be renewed.
