Student Financial & Other Resources

ACEPT’s Student Financial Concerns Committee has been considering ways that ACEPT can assist graduate students in psychology in the Chicagoland area with financial, housing, medical, and other needs. We have put together this list of resources for students to utilize. ACEPT does not endorse any particular agencies, institutions, or providers listed, but does want to offer a range of options to students in sharing this list. If you have any questions or concerns, please visit our Contact Page and send us a message.


In an effort to address some of the financial hardship faced by students, ACEPT will soon begin awarding grants to students experiencing financial insecurity. Students from ACEPT member programs who are experiencing financial insecurity and are not currently completing a full-time paid internship are eligible to apply. The first grant award ($500) will be awarded in July 2023. The deadline to apply is 5 pm on June 16, 2023. The winner will be selected by lottery. The awardee will be required to submit proof from their graduate program that they are actively enrolled as a student. They will also have to provide ACEPT with a statement explaining how they used the grant money they received to address their financial insecurity and provide feedback on ways this process could be improved.
