Scholarships and Graduate Assistantships, Graduate Clinical Psychology
The Scholarship Committee of the Institute for Graduate Clinical Psychology (IGCP) is pleased to be able to support the work of our students through various awards made available to us by the generosity of donors and university-based scholarships and graduate assistantships.
The Admissions Committee considers tuition reduction scholarships based on merit as well as attracting a class that represents historically under-represented groups in psychology. Such tuition reduction scholarships are awarded in writing at the time of acceptance.
Community Service-based Scholarships
IGCP has several scholarships and graduate assistantships available to students who are dedicated to community service. In exchange for their commitment to ongoing community-based work locally, students can receive a substantial reduction in tuition costs.
IGCP Community Service Scholars Graduate Assistantships
Students who receive these assistantships commit to participate in one day a week of community service during their first three years in the program in exchange for a tuition remission of one third of the full tuition annually for three years. Students are paired with ongoing projects and peers to serve our community and learn from this experience.
Neubauer Family Scholarship Award
The Neubauer Family Foundation Scholarship is awarded to one incoming student at IGCP. The scholarship covers 80% of tuition for three years and 50% of tuition for the last two years, and is designed to attract high-quality applicants to conduct a long-term community-based service project in Chester, PA.
Applicants for the scholarship should show an established commitment to the field of psychology, as documented by work history, research projects, affiliations with professional organizations such as Psy Chi or APA, presentations at conferences, and publications.
Additionally, applicants should have a minimum undergraduate GPA of 3.5 or a minimum graduate GPA of 3.75 and GRE scores at or above the 70th percentile.

Applicants interested in being considered for either the Neubauer Family Scholarship or our IGCP Community Service Scholars scholarships should answer the following optional questions found on the online application:
