Financial Aid

The Psychology Department provides teaching and research assistantships for students in good standing. With recent increases in funding from both University and extramural sources, the department is providing four years of funding for all students.   All awards include full tuition remission.  Stipend and fellowship amounts currently are $20,000 per year, with minor differences depending on the award.  In addition, the University offers Presidential Fellowships to our most competitive students which provide a higher level of fellowship and full tuition remission for 5 years. Several of our students have applied for and received national fellowships from NIH and from NSF.  For information regarding specific support packages, admitted applicants should contact the relevant program directors.
