Prospective Students

Applying to Graduate School

A key component to fostering an inclusive community that welcomes, supports, and respects everyone is the active participation of members from a wide array of social identity groups, some of which have been historically disadvantaged and excluded from academic settings.

At Ohio State, we encourage people from diverse or underrepresented groups to apply to graduate school and to join our graduate student community. If you have any questions about the application process and would like to contact a current graduate student, please see the Contact Page for more information. For more information on fee waivers, please see

Graduate Enrichment Fellowships are used to recruit new, incoming graduate students to Ohio State who will bring diversity to the Department and the university. Students cannot apply directly for these fellowships. Instead, nominations are made and submitted by the Psychology Department at the time of admissions and all eligible applicants are considered for Enrichment Fellowships.
