Financial Aid

It is the policy of the university and of the Psychology department to support students who have been accepted and are making timely progress in their graduate studies. The standard package provides five years of support, consisting of a stipend, specified units of tuition remission, and health benefits. The package may be structured using fellowships that are provided by or administered by the university, research assistantships (RAs) that most often come from faculty research funding, teaching assistantships (TAs) that require duties as a laboratory or discussion section instructor, and various other sources of funding.

Applicants for doctoral studies are considered for fellowships and other financial support as part of the admissions process.

See the Financial Aid site for more information about available fellowships and other support.
