All PMB students who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents receive full financial support including tuition, health insurance, fees, and a 12-month stipend. The stipend amount for the 2016-2017 year is $31,006.
Assuming satisfactory progress toward the PhD, students may expect continued support of tuition, health insurance, and stipend through at least six years of graduate study.
Funding is provided by an NIH training grant that is restricted to U.S. citizens and permanent residents. Foreign students must have funding from their own governments or a formal agency.
Students are encouraged to apply for external sources of funding such as National Science Foundation Predoctoral Fellowships, NIH Predoctoral Fellowhips to Promote Diversity in Health-Related Research, and the Association for Women in Science Predoctoral Awards. Students accepted in the Program in Molecular Biophysics have an excellent record of success in pursuing these opportunities.
