GRADUATE


Graduate Merit (GM) and the Graduate Diversity (GD) Fellowships are university fellowships. The GM and GD fellowships are only open to U.S. citizens and first-time doctoral students. These are highly prestigious and coveted awards. The department has to be able to contribute resources to both of these fellowships, so we are limited in the number of students that we can nominate for these awards. As such, our programs only select a few individuals to be nominated every year. These packages are currently financially structured like this:

GRAD MERIT

$25,000 –  Fellowship Stipend – 1st year
$36,000 –  Payment toward Resident Tuition and fees ($9,000.00/ year for 4 years)
$2,112 –  One year Insurance reimbursement


$63,112  –  Total Package

GRAD Diversity

$54,000 –  Fellowship Stipend ($18,000/ year for 3 years)
$27,000 –  Payment toward Resident Tuition and fees ($9,000.00/ year for 3 years)
$22,707 –  Graduate Assistantship ($7,569/ year for 3 years)


$103,707 –  Total Package

EPSY offered two graduate scholarships for the 2012-2013 academic year.


Heather Bradley Scholarship

  • First-year students in Special Education, School Counseling and School Psychology
  • $1,000 (minimum) per academic year

The majority of EPSY graduate students have GA positions either with EPSY, with a grant or research project, or with another department at Texas A&M University. Many GA positions available in EPSY are course supported and are usually filled by more experienced students, but a GA position is not guaranteed. Non-departmental Graduate assistantship (GA) opportunities may be posted on Jobs for Aggies.

If an out-of-state student is awarded any competitive Texas A&M scholarship or fellowship of $1,000.00 or more, the student will be allowed to pay in-state tuition rates for the academic year, which can provide an overall savings of $7,000 -$10,000 over the course of the academic year.
