Fully Funded PhD Programs in School Psychology
The University of Minnesota offers fully funded packages to all PhD students in School Psychology.

Last updated April 18, 2022

As part of my series on How to Fully Fund Your PhD, I provide a list of universities that offer full funding for a PhD in School Psychology. A PhD in School Psychology can prepare you for a career in psychology working at private and public schools, community agencies, hospitals and clinics, and universities.

“Full funding” is a financial aid package for full-time students that includes full tuition remission and an annual stipend or salary for the three to six-year duration of the student’s doctoral studies. Funding is typically offered in exchange for graduate teaching and research work that is complementary to your studies. Not all universities provide full funding to their doctoral students, which is why I recommend researching the financial aid offerings of all the potential PhD programs in your academic field, including small and lesser-known schools both in the U.S. and abroad.

You can also find several external fellowships in the ProFellow database for graduate and doctoral study, as well as dissertation research, fieldwork, language study and summer work experience.
