The Cultivating Representation in School Psychology (CRISP) Initiative seeks to improve the representation of school-based mental health care providers. In 2021, the National Association of School Psychologists surveyed current practitioners and found that 87.5% identify as female and 86% identify as white; these data highlight the immediate and glaring need to improve representation across school-based mental health care providers. The SUNY Oswego School Psychology MS/CAS program is pleased to announce the receipt of a $3.5 million Department of Education grant to enhance diversity in the field of School Psychology.
Working in partnership with Syracuse City School District, the School Psychology Fellowship Program will provide robust financial support to graduate students throughout the 63 credit hour School Psychology MS/CAS program, including
- a full tuition scholarship,
- a graduate assistantship with a $ 35,000-a-year stipend,
- dedicated placements in the Syracuse City School District,
- supervisory and mentorship opportunities, and
- support to engage with the professional community as a graduate student.
Participating students will have a fully-funded internship in the Syracuse City School District with the opportunity for immediate employment in the district following graduation.
To be eligible for this award, prospective candidates must be accepted and matriculate to the School Psychology MS/CAS program full-time and contribute to the diversity of the field of school psychology. Men and students of color are encouraged to apply. Submitting your application and the supporting materials authorizes program staff and Syracuse City School District staff to evaluate your qualifications as a successful candidate.
Deadline: February 1st (Applications will open December 2023)
