Ways to Support GSPP Students

Giving to a scholarship is also crucial to helping GSPP compete with the lucrative financial packages offered by other institutions to attract the most promising psychology students from around the country and globe.

Only 35% of GSPP students receive scholarship aid compared to roughly 62% of other graduate students at the University of Denver; yet our students generally have GRE scores that are higher than the national average. Even better, GSPP PsyD students average five points higher than other doctoral students at the University.
