Graduate Assistance in Areas of National Need (GAANN) fellowships are available to Ph.D. students in the School of Psychology at Georgia Tech who are completing a curriculum, and have research interests, in the field of psychology. Recipients must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents with demonstrated financial need. Fellows receive a stipend via a combination of fellowship and assistantship funds.
The goal of this GAANN fellowship program is to make a significant contribution to satisfying the nation's needs for Ph.D.s who are optimally trained to embark on research and teaching careers in psychology. As part of their degree program, GAANN fellows will: (i) complete psychology courses to satisfy degree course requirements, (ii) participate in GAANN program activities, (iii) complete a supervised teaching experience, and (iv) conduct thesis research in psychology. Fellows who aspire to academic careers will be encouraged to complete the Tech to Teaching Faculty Preparation courses.
Note: The fellowship consists of an award of financial aid. Acceptance of subsidized loans and other fellowships will reduce the financial need and possibly decrease eligibility for GAANN support. Students must be appointed as a teaching or research assitant in order to received a GAANN fellowship.
