Financial aid for the program is awarded in bundles that span the time length of the program. There are 3 competitive Scholarship / Assistantship packages, which include a mix of scholarship funds and academic year and summer assistantships, ranging in value from approximately $13,000 to $20,000. In addition to these award packages, 6 Academic Year Assistantships are available, each worth approximately $7200 spread over the length of the program (these are counted as "non-teaching fellowships" in the APA categorization above, because they do not involve teaching and are not scholarships).
