Funding & Fellowships
All students admitted to the Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program are guaranteed a stipend to cover living expenses (in 2013-14, $31,000), plus payment of tuition and fees.
To make the available funds go as far as possible, all students who are admitted will be considered for fellowships administered by the Graduate Division on this campus, a major source of support for incoming students.
In addition, students are encouraged to apply for support from other sources, such as the National Science Foundation and Ford Foundation predoctoral fellowships. Information about extramural support can be found here. If outside fellowship support is not obtained, or if partial awards are made, other money available to the program will be used to supplement the awards up to the guaranteed level of support.
