Organizing to Understand the Relationships Enriching and Advancing Community Health

Background: Two newly created fellowships are available from the Psychology Department and Suffolk University for incoming students.
The title OUTREACH is an acronym standing for Organizing to Understand The Relationships Enriching and Advancing Community Health. It is directed toward serving both economically disadvantaged students, as well as economically and socially disadvantaged client populations. The purpose of the fellowships is for the Clinical Psychology program to reach out to both of these groups, better incorporating them into the fabric of the program, and thereby enhancing the program's richness and vitality.
This fellowship will provide full tuition remission for students for the first three years of their graduate training. Students will be required to update and confirm their continuing eligibility in order to continue to receive the fellowship before each succeeding year of their participation.
Eligibility Guidelines: Candidates will be judged on the basis of the following criteria:
1. Demonstrated need for economic support determined on the basis of federal assessment guidelines.
2. Expressed interest and commitment to focus, through research or clinical activities, on the needs of diverse underserved and/or economically and socially disadvantaged groups and individuals.
3. Candidates will be required to submit a 500-word essay to discuss and demonstrate this interest and commitment. If necessary, they will be interviewed by members of the Psychology Department, in order to choose among finalists.
4. Preference will be given to students from cultural groups that are underrepresented in the program or in the field of Clinical Psychology.
Procedure: If you have questions about applying for one of these fellowships, please contact Pamela Petras, the Psychology Department Program Administrator ( or
