Elaine Tripi Endowed Scholarship in Rehabilitation Counseling

Back to Endowments

About Elaine Tripi

This endowed scholarship is a gift from Elaine M. Tripi, Ph.D., CRC, in honor of her grandchildren Nicholas and Olivia Coopersmith. Dr. Tripi's father and mother instilled the value of education in all of their children; therefore she wished to encourage her grandchildren to pursue higher education as well. Her parents only attained grammar school educations because of the Great Depression, but they gave their children the gift of travel and support to attain greater educational achievements.


Elaine completed her undergraduate degree from State University of New York at Buffalo. Subsequently, almost a decade after her graduation, she completed her Master's Degree from Wayne State University. She then decided to pursue a doctorate at Michigan State University in Counseling Psychology from the College of Education. She became a licensed psychologist and has worked in Michigan for the past two decades specializing in working with veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
