Shana E. Rochester, Doctoral Student, Education and Psychology

"After graduating with a degree in psychology from Spelman College, I was looking for a program that would challenge me to critically apply psychological concepts to enhance how children learned and developed in the school context. I also needed a program that would allow me to strengthen my foundation in educational theory. I learned that the Combined Program in Education and Psychology (CPEP) did both!"  

Currently in her third year of doctoral degree studies, Shana plans to reach candidacy by the end of August 2015 and has a  remarkable funding package to support her in accomplishing her goal.

Funding packages with comprehensive health insurance

The majority of students in our doctoral programs  receive a minimum of four years of financial support to cover tuition, along with a stipend for living expenses during the fall and winter semesters and health insurance for the entire year. Keep in mind that the School of Education provides health and dental benefits for you and your family members. The University of Michigan Benefits Office offers information about the benefit packages that we offer our PhD students.

Typically, as a student in this program, you'll receive a 20-hour-per-week assignment as graduate student research assistant, graduate student staff assistant, or graduate student instructor. Your academic progress will be reviewed annually by faculty and awards are contingent upon maintaining good academic standing. Learn more about individual funding opportunities by visiting programs that interest you.

Because the funding options available to you depend upon the program in which you enroll, we list the opportunities by program.
