Funding for graduate students

The College of Biological Sciences graduate programs seek to support graduate students from diverse backgrounds in pursuit of research and academic excellence.  

Students are typically financially supported through:

  • research assistantships from faculty advisors
  • teaching assistantships
  • fellowship stipends
  • training grants
  • travel grants
  • professional development support

Assistantships and fellowships include a bi-weekly stipend and will cover your tuition and payment towards health insurance premiums. You will be responsible for paying student fees and any required course or laboratory fees. Course and laboratory fees are very uncommon. Check student fee details

Funding for graduate students is primarily available through individual departments and academic programs. Please contact your graduate program coordinator or director of graduate studies for more information.
