School Counseling Scholarships & Forensic Psychology Grants

American Academy of Forensic Psychologists

Scholarship Name: Dissertation Grants in Applied Law/Psychology
Description: Post-graduate study can be expensive for a number of reasons – high costs of tuition, books, and living arrangements all have to be paid for. But some costs that are often overlooked are dissertation costs – printing, travel and data collection.

  • Potential contribution of the dissertation to applied law-psychology

  • Budgetary needs, review of applicant’s personal statement

Each applicant should submit a cover letter outlining his/her career goals, a detailed budget and award request, and the timeline of the proposed dissertation.
