Louisiana Tech offers several avenues of financial support for its Counseling Psychology doctoral students, including a limited number of fellowships for minorities. Please see Program Statistics for detailed information about these opportunities.
The Counseling Psychology Doctoral Program is committed to diversity, adheres to the APA (standards) for multicultural competence, and embeds this initiative throughout the program curricula. The Counseling Psychology Doctoral Program strives to produce culturally competent professional psychologists who are advocates for social justice and well equipped to meet the needs of a diverse clientele. Furthermore, the program strives to provide a supportive and encouraging learning environment for the training of diverse individuals and providing opportunities in diverse settings for a broad spectrum of individuals. The program avoids any restrictions that are irrelevant to success in graduate training.
Thus, the program has the expectation that faculty and students “are aware of and respect cultural, individual, and role differences including those based on age, gender, gender identity, race, ethnicity, culture, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, disability, language, and socioeconomic status” (APA Ethics Code, 2002, Principle E, p. 1063).
Louisiana Tech is an equal opportunity institution that values diversity. Candidates of all backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
