Many students in the experimental concentration receive graduate assistantships or teaching assistantships. Assistantships provide full or partial tuition remission, plus a stipend.

There are three ways to apply for assistantships:

  1. The experimental program director can usually make two 10-hour per week assistantship offers to incoming students. All admitted students will be considered for these positions; there is no separate application. The program director usually makes these offers in March.
  2. The psychology department usually has about ten 10-hour per week teaching assistantships for psychology graduate students. The experimental program director will email the call for applications to all current and admitted students; this usually happens in late April.
  3. There are many graduate assistantships in other departments and offices on campus. Admitted students can apply for these positions on Handshake, which is described on the website listed below.
