Psychology is a constantly advancing field in new theories and approaches. The professionals in this field recognize the necessity to encourage its' study by providing the fiscal draw to serious students through scholarship merit. Please, all followers of Freud and Jung, do not get "hung up" on your personal issues in the past and pounce on these opportunities in the moment that they exist.
A limited supply of scholarships are available to interested parties. Scholarship merit comes first, but serious consideration is given to provide scholarship to minorities as well. It is very important that grades, extracurriculars, and campus life participation overall lead in the decision for scholarship merit. Women of all races and men other than caucasion in origin are encouraged to apply for scholarship to minorities. Often, the tie breaker between race/ethnicity and/or sex and merit, outstanding scholarship merit above and beyond the expected will be granted scholarship first. An obvious aptitude for the field of psychology is a plus, although it may or may not play a part in the ultimate deciding factor for the scholarships available. Forms may be found in the financial aid office or ask the professors and instructors in the psychology department if they have one on hand. Efficiency increases by doing the latter as applying for scholarship merit or scholarship to minorities will also require at least one professor recommendation. Please note the deadline for application acceptance, as this is followed strictly to provide fairness to the other students.
