If you are admitted to the Ph.D. program in Psychological Sciences at Vanderbilt, you will be awarded a graduate assistantship consisting of a stipend, tuition scholarship, and health insurance. Our stipends are very competitive with other universities.
Stipend and tuition support is guaranteed for at least five years for students who remain in in good standing in the program.
Stipend monies derive from a variety of sources. Graduate student support derives from externally-funded research, teaching assistantships, fellowships, research assistantships, and supplemental awards from the University, the Graduate School, and the College. The majority of students receive summer employment or grants as well. Over-and-above these awards, monies are usually available for professional development, research equipment, and travel to conferences.
When comparing our financial package to other schools, be sure to note that Nashville’s cost of living is lower than many other major metropolitan areas.
