Funding Opportunities

Limited funding opportunities are available for students, including teaching and graduate assistantships, and scholarships.


The industrial/organizational psychology division awards one-year, half-tuition scholarships (4.5 credits per semester) to a number of students based on merit.


Students can apply for teaching assistantships after the first year. Teaching assistants receive partial tuition reimbursement and a monthly stipend. These positions are quarter-time (10 hours per week) and are based on students’ performance academically and their engagement in the program.

Graduate Assistantships

The Center for Research and Service has many opportunities for students to work and gain experience. Project-based funding is available for students who work at the center.
