Financial Aid

We provide partial ​support for all of our students during the first and second years of the program (when credits are particularly heavy). Some students will qualify for full funding as a result of specific scholarships available through Hofstra University. Since the amount of funding available varies from year to year as a function of Hofstra's budget, the specific amount will not be known until offers are being madeduring March​. If you are accepted into our program, the amount of financial support will be made available at that time. See below for a description of sources of financial aid.

Hofstra University, as noted in the program brochure, is situated in a geographic location where the cost of living is high. Since we allow only full-time study in the program, students ​must consider​ program costs in mind when accepting an offer of admission and planning their education.​


  • Research Fellowships
  • Diversity Scholarship in Clinical Psychology
  • 1st Year Tuition Scholarships
  • Teaching Assignments
  • Course Assistantships
  • Professional Travel Support
  • Dissertation Funding
  • PERCC Intake Coordinators
  • Endowed Awards
  • H. Alan Robinson Outstanding Dissertation Award

In summary, a number of sources of financial assistance are available for students in the Ph.D. Program. However, as noted above, costs at Hofstra and on Long Island are moderate to high, and students must be able to pay for their own education through personal resources, family support, savings, loans, etc.
