School Psychology Financial Support Graduate Programs

All PhD students are funded as research, teaching, or clinical assistantships throughout their pre-internship training. A limited number of assistantships may be available to MA/EdS students. All departmental assistantships are contracted for 20 hours per week. During the first year of departmental financial assistance, the student must attend a weekly colloquium on Friday afternoon which may be taken for credit (PSYC 7621) in order to achieve the required 12 hrs per semester. The department business manager assists the student in completing the contract and provides information on specific contractual expectations, funding amounts and payments. In most instances funding is provided by the Department of Psychology and students seeking financial aid should contact the program coordinator.

Assistantships or other financial support may be available through the College of Education, Health and Human Sciences, The Lipman Early Childhood School and Research Institute, or the Graduate School. Students are encouraged to contact these resources. Students on assistantships that require 20 hours peer week of service are not expected to be employed in other capacities during their training. Other forms of financial assistance (e.g., student loans) may be explored through the UM Office of Student Financial Aid.
