    How much did your Psy.D. program offer you this year in scholarship awards? Don't be shy or modest, its an anonymous forum!

    It depends on the award amount compared to cost of attendance and cost of living for where you'll be.

    Well, I don't there's any such thing as a "bad" scholarship amount. Free money is always good, and more is always better!

    Let's just say full tuition = amazing,
    Some money = good
    No money at all = bad

    :D

    What exactly are you asking for....I've given you my answer. It's been my experience and apparently many others from other threads that PsyD programs don't offer a lot, if any, dinero. Hope this helps!

    Sounds like you got a pretty good deal. It's just been my experience in researching programs that PhD programs offer more money.

    Gal in my lab group is attending a PsyD program this upcoming year. They have not offered her jack--no money, no tuition waiver, no stipend, no assistantship . . . And the poor gal's going to be living in San Francisco on top of the lack of contribution from her program! It seems like a good fit for her and she appears happy with the program, but, damn, I personally would hate to be in the same situation. Different strokes for different folks and all o' that! :cool:

    I'm getting an admissions scholarship of $1200, annually. So that adds up to almost $5000 total... not amazing, but every little bit counts.

    In addition, there are teaching assistantships which (provided I can land one) will pay more. Not sure how much though. There are also more scholarships you can apply for after your first year (at my school). The scholarship I'm getting already I never applied for or anything... they based it on my application info.

    Working during school helps more than you might think. That's part of my plan too. Luckily I didn't need to take out any private loans. :luck:

    Some PsyD programs will help you fund yourself (though admittedly nowhere near what most PhD programs will do), but you need to look for it and be on top of it yourself. No one's going to just hand it to you.:cool:

    One of the schools I was accepted at (PsyD) offered full tuition and small stipend for 20 hour assistanship. Another, half tuition and small stipend for 10 hour assistanship, with the possibility of more funding following the first year. Hope that helps!

    I recently recieved a scholarship that pays my entire tuition as well as my room and board for a PsyD program. I didn't think that I would get the scholarship, but I did. I am constantly checking this site: www.fastweb.com
    It perpetually updates me on scholarships that I qualify for. So take a chance, the few hours you spend on an essay could easily be thousands of dollars for your education. GOOD LUCK TO ALL OF YOU!!! Don't doubt yourself, just APPLY!

    I was always skeptical of this website, but I'm glad to hear it worked out well for you. How many scholarships would you say you applied for before you got one? I applied to a couple when I began grad school, and ever since the website has just been a source of spam email. :laugh:

    I was offered a $5,000 PsyD Scholarship from CW Post in exchange for 3 hours of research assisting which I can begin in the summer before classes start. The school said they may be able to increase this offer after they get a better picture of the final incoming class. It is not guaranteed for my remaining years because it's based on their available funding, but traditionally they have been able to extend it for 3 years.

    When I was accepted to a PsyD program, I was awarded an Academic Merit scholarship of $5,000 annually (so $20,000). I've also applied to two school-wide scholarships (one's a full year of tuition, the other's a set amount; both have to be re-applied for each year)... fingers and toes crossed I get at least one of those!
