R. Jesse Masterson Student Support Fund



This fund, sponsored by the Pacifica Graduate Institute Alumni Association (PGIAA), will provide interest-free loans to CLIE students who are financially struggling to complete their graduate work and who are confronting a financial emergency that requires support.

R. Jesse Masterson, a member of the first Community, Liberation, Indigenous, and Eco-Psychologies Specialization (CLIE) cohort of Pacifica’s M.A./Ph.D. Depth Psychology Program, was a devoted educator committed to multicultural understanding. He brought attention to the impossible choices many graduates students are forced to make between paying for tuition, medical insurance and care, utility bills, and food. He died of pancreatic cancer on 1/7/16 while completing his dissertation on the embodied self in nature.

This fund, sponsored by the Pacifica Graduate Institute Alumni Association (PGIAA), will provide interest-free loans to CLIE students who are financially struggling to complete their graduate work and who are confronting a financial emergency that requires support. Its long-term viability will be dependent both on contributions and on repayment of funds. When funds are available, students will be notified regarding an application period. A three-person committee of a faculty, an alum, and the director of the Alumni Association will review requests and distribute funds.
