PhD Financial Assistance

The Department of Educational Psychology offers a variety of funding opportunities to support the research and development of PhD students. Graduate assistantships and tuition scholarships make the cost of Baylor’s PhD in Educational Psychology program competitive with programs at both public and private universities nationwide!

  • Graduate Assistantships provide students with the opportunity to assist faculty members with research, teaching, and similar academic responsibilities.
    • Graduate assistantships may be funded internally (by Baylor University) or externally. Externally funded assistantships typically involve work with grant-funded projects.
    • Graduate assistants (GAs) typically receive stipends and tuition remission (i.e., scholarship).
    • Students typically work 15 - 20 hours per week, which is considered a full-time GA.
    • In some cases, part-time graduate assistantships are available.
    • Graduate assistantships are competitive. Please complete the Graduate Assistantship and Tuition Scholarship Application by Dec. 5.
  • Tuition Scholarships are also available for students. All students, with or without a graduate assistantship, are eligible to apply for tuition scholarships.

All doctoral students are encouraged to seek other means of financial assistance. Please utilize the following resources, among others, to maximize resources:

Graduate Assistant positions are competitive and require an additional review process beyond the process for admission. Please complete the Graduate Assistantship and Tuition Scholarship Application by Dec. 5.

Though admissions decisions and funding decisions are considered separately, many students receive full support. Student funding is granted for one year, with no guarantee of future funding. Rarely, however, has a student in good standing been denied continuing support for the duration of a reasonable term of study.
