UMD IO MPS Resources
Prospective applicants for the program should contact the program at iomps [at] umd.edu for any questions they have about the program. If you have any questions about the program coursework, professors, career, IO in general, or other professional/personal concerns, please contact iomps [at] umd.edu.
All faculty in the program are available to talk to students, alumni, and prospective applicants. In addition to advice and guidance, Drs. Aiken, Yusko, Arun, Hanges, Cooper, and Professor Winslow keep students updated on job openings and developments in IO Psychology throughout their time at UMD and after they graduate.
At this time, we are unable to provide scholarships or graduate assistantships through our program. However, there are at times teaching assistantships available in the Department of Psychology, and competitive graduate assistantships available on campus that our students secure.

A number of professional associations are available for IO psychologists. One professional association, the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP) provides a list of professional associations IO psychologists might be interested in joining. That list is available here: http://www.siop.org/IOGroups.aspx.
In addition to joining SIOP, we recommend joining the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM) and/or the Personnel Testing Council of Metropolitan Washington (PTC-MW). Each of these organizations provides a discounted membership rate for students. Links for joining SIOP, SHRM, and PTC-MW are below:
