Due to the on-going global pandemic, PhD funding will be limited for fall 2021-2022 admission. We anticipate being able to fund very few new students. Potential applicants should consider this circumstance in making their decision to apply. In case of doubt, please contact the Director of Graduate Studies or the Director of Graduate Admissions. As circumstances change, this message will be updated.
Successful applicants to the PhD programs typically receive financial support through state and/or research funding lines. PhD applicants are also eligible for supplementary scholarships through the department’s nomination.
Funding for the MA program is limited. Possible funding sources include: University at Buffalo Graduate School Financial Aid, funding from a sponsoring faculty member’s research grant or university-affiliated employment.
The Arthur A. Schomburg Fellowship Program funds exceptional PhD students. This fellowship offers support for historically underrepresented students in doctoral programs across the university.
If you are eligible and would like to be considered, please include a 500 word statement with your department application describing how you will contribute to the diversity of the student body in the Psychology graduate program, including how you have overcome a disadvantage or other impediment to success in higher education.
Deadline: In order to be considered for the Schomburg Fellowship, both PhD and MA applicants must formally submit an online departmental application plus all application materials by November 30.
