Jonathan Davis Scholars

This scholarship is given to support a graduate student in psychology with a special interest in suicide awareness or suicide prevention.

We are proud to introduce the 2016-17 scholarship recipients:

Anne Metz

Anne Metz
Counseling and Supervision

"With the odd hours and complex clinical situations, it can be easy to lose sight of why I work in crisis and emergency services. However, receiving the Jonathan Davis Memorial Scholarship has been a powerful reminder of why this work matters. I am very appreciative of the Davis family for their support, and feel that this scholarship has reinvigorated my commitment to community-based suicide prevention."

Agnes Cabry

Agnes Carbrey
Clinical Mental Health

"The Jonathan Davis Scholarship Award allows me to be a fulltime student and opens new doors into engagement in research and learning. My interest in suicide prevention has been focused in two target populations: college students and returning veterans. For the past several years I have been a part-time grad student, but I am also a professional artist and teach in the School of Art, Design and Art History."
