Clark University psychology professor Nicole Overstreet has been named a 2018 Nancy Weiss Malkiel Scholar by the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation.

“I am honored to be selected as a 2018 Nancy Weiss Malkiel Scholar and I remain committed to diversity and inclusion in higher education,” said professor Overstreet.

Overstreet is one of nine other junior scholars at prestigious universities across the U.S. including Yale, Columbia, and Cornell University, received the award.

About Overstreet

Overstreet will receive a 12-month award of $17,500 while working toward tenure to support her research on how sociocultural processes (stigma, stereotyping, and discrimination) influence mental and sexual health disparities for Black women and other marginalized groups. 

Overstreet also examines the relationship between objectification, violence, and health, with a specific focus on the intersection of multiple identities such as race/ethnicity, gender, and sexual orientation.

She recently received $100,000 from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) to fund her research on health outcomes for those who experience intimate partner violence (IPV). 

She also received funding from the HIV and Drug Abuse Prevention Research Ethics Training Institute (RETI), directed by Celia Fisher at Fordham University and supported by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, to support her research on the role of intersectional stigma in research among African American women living with HIV. 

Overstreet earned her Ph.D. in social psychology from the University of Connecticut and was a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Interdisciplinary Research on AIDS at Yale University.

She joined the Clark faculty in September of 2014.
