Support the Rolf A. Peterson Scholarship Fund, created in honor of the clinical psychology program’s long-serving director at the time of his retirement in 2013 . The Fund supports graduate students gaining professional experience in the Meltzer Center clinic, which serves members of the GW community as well as clients from the Washington area. (Dr. Peterson, by the way, continues to grace us with his presence with some frequency.)
