John and Vivian MacRae Scholarship for Exceptional Educational Resilience

Dr. John MacRae was deeply devoted to his students and served as a faculty of our department from 1954 to 1980 and as Department Chair. Thanks to a generous gift in honor and memory of John and Vivian MacRae, an annual scholarship will be awarded to a current SJSU Psychology undergraduate or graduate student who is succeeding in their education in spite of great personal challenges.
