Graduate students in Psychology receive financial support at levels comparable to those at other major universities. Post doctoral students receive a minimum guaranteed level of support for the first four years of their PhD ($17,000 per year for four years), unless there are other arrangements made at the time of admission. Support is in the form of fellowships, awards, teaching assistantships, and research assistantships. Students are expected to apply for awards during their studies here. Financial support is contingent on maintaining high academic standing and making satisfactory progress toward their degree completion.
