Financial Support for Graduate Students
Graduate Assistantships and Graduate Teaching Assistantships
The Department of Psychology has historically been able to provide four semesters of graduate assistantship support for all students interested in and qualified for an assistantship. GA and GTA stipends for the most recent academic year were $4,000 and $4,500 per semester, respectively. The majority of the graduate assistantships support students to work on a research project under the supervision of a faculty member. Students usually have the opportunity to choose a research project on which to work, and this research project can lead to a thesis project.
Funds are available for partial tuition waivers for selected students. In addition, out-of -state students who have an assistantship receive a waiver of the non-resident portion of their tuition.
Health insurance coverage, subsidized by the Office of Graduate Studies and Research, is available to graduate students for a nominal fee ($20/semester for the most recent academic year).
The Department of Psychology, the College Dean's Office, and the Office of Graduate Studies and Research provide funding to partially offset the cost of travel to a professional conference.
Graduate students can apply to the Office of Graduate Studies and Research for grants up to $750 to support research costs, including participant payments.
