The Dr. Jebediah Gaffney Scholarship

After receiving his Bachelor of Science degree at UMass Boston, Dr. Gaffney went on to receive a doctorate in psychology. He taught at UMass Boston after completing his education. The Scholarship awards a student who is pursuing a degree in psychology. Preference is given to students pursuing careers in addiction or substance abuse counseling, so that they may continue the work that Dr. Gaffney was interested in and pursuing.
