Biomedical Sciences PhD Tuition & Financial Support
Students admitted to the Biomedical Sciences PhD program receive a financial assistance package that includes a stipend and tuition. For the 2016-17 academic year, the stipend is $26,982.
A number of first-year supplemental awards and fellowships are also available on a competitive basis.
The program pays the stipend and tuition for the first two years. Subsequently, the adviser for the dissertation research is responsible for the stipend and tuition.
