Hellervik Prize

Established in fall 2005, the Hellervik Prize is made possible by Dr. Lowell Hellervik, St. Cloud State University alumnus. Dr. Hellervik co-founded Personnel Decisions International, a global consulting firm. He received the Distinguished Professional Contributions Award by the Society for Industrial Organizational/Psychologists in 1999 and the 2018 Visionary Award from the SCSU Foundation.

The purpose is to encourage research or scholarly activity which advances knowledge on issues of importance to students, college/school, university, and society. Research is broadly defined as creative achievement and/or the scholarly pursuit of knowledge using recognized procedures in the principal investigator’s discipline or area of study.

Applicants can apply for up to $10,000 and the principal investigator awarded will receive one course release (3-4 credits maximum) during the academic year of the grant award.
