Psychology Graduate Student Hardship Fund

Graduate Students obtaining their Psychology PhDs have to balance conducting research studies, analyzing data, publishing their findings, training and supervising undergraduate research assistants, and teaching all while taking on a full load of classes. While student stipends are sufficient to cover their basic needs, experiencing an unforeseen event (E.G., illness or a car accident) can put a student in a vulnerable situation and possibly lead to acquiring crippling debt. This in turn can cause extreme stress and impede graduation. The Psychology Graduate Student Hardship Fund is set up to provide support for those who face unforeseen emergencies. By donating, your gift will make a direct impact on the lives of our valued students. Help us ensure that each recipient obtains their degree and moves forward in life representing FIU locally, nationally, and internationally.
