Since 1993, the Clinical Psychology Program has also grantedpartial scholarships via the James S. Scappaticcio Fellowship for Gay Men andLesbian doctoral candidates in Clinical Psychology. Tuition grants areavailable for one or two “self-identified gay clinical doctoral candidates”;small grants-in-aid are also made available for research on topics relevant tohomosexuality, including psychological and/or psychosocial aspects of AIDS orHIV treatment. Since 2005, the program has also granted one to two partialscholarships for students in the child-track via the Jodi Lane ScholarshipFund. Priority is given to those students studying psychological disorders inchildren. The program currently does not have NIMH-funded traineeships tooffer. Most doctoral students with significant financial need obtain help inthe form of a tuition scholarship that covers approximately 25-50% of the costof a year’s tuition; some also receive stipends from faculty research grants.Most students also work part-time to cover expenses.
