Hello Out There,
I was wondering if anyone had information on whether or not there are scholarships through the military for a master's degree in child psychology?
Any information will be helpfull before I contact military representatives.

Hi. I am currently in the Navy. I have researched all options of military reimbursement. There are two options. However, these options include psych positions. The first link is the military's health school, m.d. and ph.d. programs and I think m.a/m.s. programs (please scour the website to make sure). Both civilians and prior military are open to apply to this school. Admission requirements are more stingent than other schools, it seems.
At this school you are a full time student, receive full pay, benefits, housing, etc. at the end you have zero debt and serve an average of 5 years active duty.
This second link is for the military scholarship program, again I'm not sure if it applies for psych degrees. However, this program allows you to attend the private/public school of your choice. A percentage of your education bills are paid for by the scholarship. Upon graduation you serve a term on active duty.

I'm not sure about MS level, but at the doc. level for clinical psych, the armed services pay VERY well for internship and post-doc. There is a service requirement, but I've heard the training is very good, and may be a good fit for people who were already considering military possibilities.
