The St. Louis Psychoanalytic Institute has a commitment to students wishing to further their education through our programs. The Institute offers a variety of scholarship opportunities for its training courses, including:
• The Eric J. Nuetzel, MD Fund of the St. Louis Psychoanalytic Institute supports the full analytic training of one full-time academic per year in the theory and practice of psychoanalysis. Such individuals use their analytic training to inform and advance their own research interests bringing psychoanalysis into universities, and university faculty into psychoanalysis, thereby enriching the intellectual environment of the Institute while advancing human knowledge.
• The Saul and Louise Rosenzweig Scholarship Fund was created to support the lifelong work of Saul Rosenzweig to bridge the gap between Academic Psychology and Psychoanalysis. In his lifetime Saul Rosenzweig did this through his research, through his methodologic approach to studying the lives of creative individuals, and in his comprehensive history of the Freud-Jung visit.
• The Herbert S. Schiele Scholarship Fund was established to provide scholarships to qualified analytic scholars and candidates who reside in the St. Louis area to help them defray the cost of psychoanalytic training.
• The Britt-Marie Schiller, Ph.D., Continuing Education Scholarship for Analytic Candidates was created by Lynda Fields in 2023 to benefit the continuing education of new or existing Analytic Candidates. Britt-Marie Schiller is a long-time member of the Institute’s faculty. A link to the application can be found at the bottom of the page.
• St. Louis Psychoanalytic Institute financial need scholarships. In addition to endowment funds, these scholarships are frequently a result of Board-designated funds or special contributions donated on an annual basis for scholarship purposes. These currently include: The John M. Drescher, Jr. and The Stephen L. Post, MD Memorial Scholarships, established with the generous donations from friends and family in memory of these two long-time supporters of the Institute upon their deaths in 2009 and 2011 respectively. In 2014, a tribute scholarship honoring the Drs. Robert and Elsie Meyers was established, as well as Paul’s Progress, established in 2014 (with the first one set to be awarded in 2015) to honor Paul Wentzien, former Chairman of the Board in recognition of his great and devoted service to the Institute.
