Funded Psychology Masters Programs

If you did not get accepted into a Clinical Psychology PhD program and are interested in trying again, you are probably looking for research positions or potentially considering applying to a Master’s program. I am a big believer in avoiding debt, and because of this I usually suggest people do not go to Masters programs unless they were a non-Psychology major or had a poor GPA. However, there is an exception – Funded Masters Programs.

Fully funded masters programs are rare. Usually, Experimental Psychology programs are most likely to be funded. However, if you are geographically flexible, there are some programs that have been known to offer very generous funding:
