Introduction and methodology

In January of each year the American Psychological Association's (APA) Education Directorate notifies the chairs of graduate departments of psychology of the annual Graduate Study in Psychology effort. The following month the chairs are sent a link to the survey. This original email is followed by three subsequent contacts requesting participation in the study. APA receives a notification email when a department has completed the survey and departments are dropped from the database when they have not updated their data for two consecutive years. The information is provided voluntarily by graduate departments and schools of psychology.

This portion of the 2011 Graduate Study in Psychology concerns four types of financial support for students: teaching assistantships, research assistantships, traineeships, and fellowships/scholarships, and is discussed in two sections. Section One covers financial support data by degree level (doctoral versus master's department) and institution type (public versus private), and distinguishes between first-year and advanced students. These data are discussed here and are represented by tables 29 and 30. Section Two covers financial support data only at the doctoral department level and distinguishes between traditional academic settings and professional schools. Those data are discussed in the following section and are represented by tables 29a and 30a.

Section one — Financial support for U.S. psychology graduate students by highest degree level and institution type

Caveats. This section presents data collected at the level of departments rather than programs and is divided according to the highest degree offered by each department. Thus, doctoral refers to information from departments where the highest degree offered is the doctorate; this will include data from terminal master's programs that exist within departments that also offer the doctorate. Likewise, master's information refers to information from departments where the highest degree offered is the master's and will not represent all master's programs; again, data from terminal master's programs within departments that offer the doctorate would be found in the doctoral information.

For all analyses, the term average will always refer to median average. Also, percentages may not add to 100 due to rounding.

Overall financial assistance

Doctoral departments. Of the 394 doctoral department respondents, 233 were in public institutions and 161 were in private institutions (table 30). On average, full-time students in public institutions were more likely to receive financial assistance (90%) than those in private settings (65%). The first quartile percentage was also higher for public institutions (70%) compared with private institutions (32%). Third quartile scores were similar for both types of institutions with nearly all full-time students receiving some type of financial assistance, 100% for public institutions and 99% for private settings.

Master's departments. There were a total of 137 master's department respondents, 93 in public institutions and 44 in private institutions (table 30). On average, 45% of full-time students in public institutions received financial assistance, whereas 28% of those in private institutions received financial assistance. For public institutions, first quartile (15%) and third quartile (80%) scores were higher than private institutions, 7% and 78% respectively.

Teaching assistantships

Doctoral departments in public institutions. For first-year students, a high percentage of these departments (84%) offered teaching assistantships (table 30). The average annual stipend amount was $12,623 and corresponded with an average of 20 hours of work per week (table 29). Of those departments offering teaching assistantships, 70% offered a full tuition waiver to first-year students. Another 20% offered partial tuition remission. Only a small proportion of departments (5%) offered both full and partial tuition remission. The other 5% did not offer tuition remission in any form to first-year students (table 30).

Just over 94% of doctoral departments in public institutions offered teaching assistantships to advanced students (table 30). These awards averaged $13,534 per year and similarly corresponded with 20 hours of work per week (table 29). About two out of three (68%) departments providing teaching assistantships offered full tuition waivers to advanced students. Another 20% offered partial remission. A small proportion of departments (7%) offered both full and partial remission and 5% did not offer any form of tuition remission to advanced students with teaching assistantships (table 30).

Doctoral departments in private institutions. Teaching assistantships were available to first-year students in two fifths (40%) of these departments, a much lower proportion compared to public institutions (table 30). The average annual award was $14,000 and the average number of hours worked per week was slightly lower at 17 (table 29). Nearly half (49%) of doctoral departments in private institutions that provided teaching assistantships offered full tuition remission to their first-year students. One in five departments (20%) offered partial tuition remission, and about 4% offered both full and partial tuition remission to first-year students. Just over a quarter (26%) of departments that offered teaching assistantships did not offer any form of tuition remission to advanced students (table 30).

Roughly three in four (77%) doctoral departments in private institutions offered teaching assistantships to advanced students, a lower percentage as compared to their public institution counterparts (table 30). These award amounts averaged only $6,000 per year, but this corresponded with an average of 10 hours worked per week (table 29). Forty-five percent of doctoral departments did not provide tuition remission for teaching assistantships to advanced students. This was followed by 32% that provided full tuition remission and another 18% that gave partial remission. A small number of departments (5%) provided both full and partial tuition remission to their advanced students on teaching assistantships (table 30).

Master's departments in public institutions. For first-year students, just over half (53%) of these departments offered teaching assistantships (table 30). The average annual award was $6,502 and corresponded with an average of 20 hours of work per week (table 29). Of those departments providing teaching assistantships, just over 23% offered full tuition remission to first-year students. Another 37% offered partial tuition remission. Only a small proportion (6%) offered both full and partial tuition remission. Over one third of these departments (35%) did not provide any form of tuition remission in combination with the teaching assistantship to first-year students (table 30).

Over half (60%) of master's departments in public institutions offered teaching assistantships to advanced students (table 30). These stipends averaged $7,000 per year and similarly corresponded with 20 hours of work per week (table 29). Just under one-quarter (24%) of departments offered full tuition remission to their advanced students with teaching assistantships. A similar proportion (27%) offered partial remission. A few departments (5%) offered both full and partial remission. The remaining 44% did not offer any form of tuition remission to advanced students (table 30).

Master's departments in private institutions. Teaching assistantships were available to first-year students in about 37% of these departments, a lower proportion as compared to public institutions (table 30). The average annual award amount was $3,675 and the average number of hours worked per week was lower at 15 (table 29). For master's departments offering teaching assistantships, 16% offered full tuition remission to their first-year students. About a quarter (26%) offered partial tuition remission and another quarter (26%) offered both full and partial tuition remission. Nearly one-third (32%) of departments did not offer any form of tuition remission to first-year students (table 30).

Almost half (47%) of master's departments in private institutions offered teaching assistantships to advanced students, a somewhat lower percentage as compared to public institutions (table 30). These award amounts averaged only $3,288 per year, but this corresponded with an average of 10 hours worked per week (table 29). Over one third (38%) of master's departments in private institutions that offered teaching assistantships to advanced students did not give tuition remission. This was followed by 29% that provided partial tuition remission and another 21% that gave full waivers. A small number of these departments (13%) provided both full and partial tuition remission to their advanced students on teaching assistantships (table 30).

Of those departments offering research assistantships, about two thirds (66%) offered full tuition remission to first-year students. About one in five departments 19% offered partial tuition remission. Only a small proportion of departments (6%) offered both full and partial tuition remission, and 8% did not offer any form of tuition remission to first-year students (table 30).

Ninety-two percent of doctoral departments in public institutions offered research assistantships to advanced students (table 30). These awards averaged $13,682 per year and corresponded with 20 hours of work per week (table 29). Nearly two thirds of these (65%) departments offered full tuition remission to advanced students.

Nearly two fifths of these departments (39%) did not offer any form of tuition remission to advanced students (table 30).

Roughly three in four (78%) doctoral departments in private institutions offered research assistantships to advanced students, a lower percentage as compared to their public institution counterparts (table 30). These award amounts averaged only $6,600 per year, but this corresponded with an average of 12 hours worked per week (table 29). Doctoral departments were most likely to not offer tuition remission (43%) for research assistantships to advanced students. This was followed by 33% that provided full tuition remission and another 19% that gave partial remission. A small proportion of departments (6%) provided both full and partial tuition remission to their advanced students on research assistantships (table 30).

Section two — Financial support for U.S. psychology graduate students by type of setting

Caveats. This section presents data collected from departments where the highest degree offered is the doctorate; this will include data from terminal master's programs that exist within departments that also offer the doctorate.

For all analyses, the term average will always refer to median average. Also, percentages may not add to 100 due to rounding.

Overall financial assistance

Of the 394 doctoral departments, 302 were in traditional health service provider settings and 92 were in professional schools (table 30a). On average, a large majority (91%) of full-time students in traditional settings received financial assistance, whereas two in five students (40%) in professional schools received financial assistance.
