Diversity Scholarship: $1,000 to $5,000 per year

The goal of the Scholarship Program in the Graduate School of Clinical Psychology is to facilitate cultural/ethnic diversity in the student community and to encourage the provision of psychological services to underserved groups.

Our faculty award a limited number of scholarships each year to students admitted to the Graduate School of Clinical Psychology. Scholarship awards are given on an annual basis and range from $1,000 to $5,000 per year. Although awards are for one year, our intent is to provide financial support to qualified students throughout the four years of academic study (the internship year is excluded). Awards are renewable each year provided the qualified students maintain satisfactory academic and clinical progress. Students wishing to make an initial application for this award should complete this form. A re-application form can be found here.

It is expected that recipients will contribute to multicultural awareness on campus and/or provide services to diverse groups while enrolled in the program. Initial and continuing scholarship recipients are required to apply for an APA Minority Scholarship within three months of receiving the scholarship.

Richter Scholarship

The Paul K. Richter Memorial Fund and the Evalyn E.C. Richter Memorial Fund, administered by the Bank of America, have awarded the funds for this program to George Fox University. The Richter Scholars program enables undergraduate and graduate students to receive funding for independent research projects conducted with a faculty mentor.

Students can apply for the Richter Scholar program during their first or second year in the PsyD program. Richter grants are available to full-time graduate (8 hrs per semester) or undergraduate (12 hrs per semester) students at George Fox.
