MPI can usually only offer partial scholarships. You must reapply every year, even if you are continuing in the same program.

The MPI-MPF Scholarship Fund was established in 2021 to award partial scholarships to clinical non-physician candidates in the psychoanalytic training program and students in the Adult and Child/Adolescent Psychodynamic Psychotherapy (ACAPP) program. Additionally, as funds are available, there may be assistance for an academic candidate. A total of $10,000 is available to be awarded each year to eligible applicants based on financial need and merit. 

The Drs. Samuel G. and Geraldine G. Reisman Scholarship was established using a generous gift from the Reismans to the Michigan Psychoanalytic Foundation in December 2000. The Reisman Scholarships will be supplemented by additional funds as they become available. The total will be awarded to support students who are enrolled in or may wish to apply for clinical training in the following programs:

Adult and Child/Adolescent Psychoanalytic Training

Adult and Child/Adolescent Advanced Psychodynamic Psychotherapy (ACAPP)

Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Fellowship

The Cassandra M. Klyman, M.D., Scholarship Fund for Psychiatric Psychoanalytic Training was established to help physicians, often financially burdened by medical school debt, to both deepen and expand their understanding of their patients’ mental lives through psychoanalytic and psychotherapy training. Scholarship recipients will be chosen based on need and merit.

MPI/MPS, Reisman and Klyman Scholarships are awarded by early September.

The Deanna Holtzman Interdisciplinary Scholarship Award Fund was originally established by Mr. James Grosfeld in memory and honor of Alexander Grinstein, M.D., and is now established by Mr. Grosfeld in honor and memory of Deanna Holtzman, Ph.D. It provides need-based grants to academic candidates who have been accepted for training at MPI. These grants are to help defray costs of training which include personal analyses, tuition and other training-related costs. It is our hope that these grants will allow academics to obtain psychoanalytic training and make contributions to psychoanalysis and their core discipline. 


The scholarship application deadline for each year is June 30th. We are unable to accommodate late applications.

You must reapply for scholarships every year, even if you are continuing in the same program!
