The Department of Educational Psychology offers a number of scholarships for undergraduate and graduate students who have made exceptional progress thus far in their education or possess qualities that the department believes distinguish their abilities.
The Department of Educational Psychology also offers the Pathways to Excellence Award. This departmental award, in the amount of $1,000, is awarded to incoming students who are pursuing a Master's Degree. Awards are granted in long semesters ($500 per semester) during the first year of continuous enrollment. There is no deadline for this award; incoming students should apply as soon as they are admitted into a Master's program. Students must be enrolled in a minimum of 9 hours to be eligible, unless they are enrolled in the Educational Diagnostician program (in which they must be enrolled in a minimum of 6 hours). Additional funding may be available during year two of the program, but preference is given to incoming students in their first year.
There are also a number of scholarships offered by the College of Education which are available to Educational Psychology students.
