Graduate Fellowships

Up to 10 Graduate Fellowships offer 30 credits of tuition remission to students possessing strong academic records.
Graduate Fellows are a highly select group of students who receive advanced training and mentoring in psychological research. The Fellowships include tuition waivers for 30 credits. Graduate Fellows work closely with a Clinical Counseling Psychology program faculty mentor for two semesters on advanced psychological research. This experience is particularly beneficial for students who expect to apply to a doctoral program in clinical or counseling psychology, as recent Assumption graduates have done.

A Fellowship also provides opportunities for contact with local community agencies and professionals which can be valuable in exploring practicum and internship sites as well as career opportunities. Recent Fellows have conducted research here at Assumption College as well as Boston Road Clinic, Children’s Friend, St. Vincent Hospital, and the University of Massachusetts Medical Center.

To be considered for a Graduate Fellowship, please write to the Program Director explaining your interest in the program and include a brief explanation of your background and career interests. Please note this is separate from all the application materials you forward to the Graduate Studies Office.
