Graduate Funding

The Developmental Science Program provides Graduate Assistantships (GAs) to qualified students on a competitive basis. GAs may teach, conduct research, or have other responsibilities that contribute to the student's professional development. GAs are classified as Graduate Assistants, Graduate Teaching Assistants or Graduate Research Assistants. All GAs are provided with a 12- month stipend, tuition waiver, and health insurance coverage.

Typically, students are awarded GAs upon entering the program. GA funding decisions are based on the quality of each graduate student's application and the availability of GA lines at that time. GAs are not available to non-degree seeking students or students admitted on a conditional admission basis. Students should let their potential faculty mentor know as early as possible that they are interested in receiving GA support if they are accepted into the program.

In addition to GAs, some students are funded by external fellowships (such as NSF graduate fellowships), training grants, TA or GA positions outside the psychology department, and other sources. For further information about GA or other funding opportunities, please contact the Developmental Science Program Director.
