Financial Aid

The Department of Biology makes available financial support through teaching and research fellowships to PhD students. These cover twelve-month stipends and tuition costs. Graduate teaching fellows assist faculty in the undergraduate instructional program, normally satisfying PhD requirements for teaching performances. Research fellowships are funded by research grants and contracts awarded to faculty. Outstanding students are nominated for competitive national fellowships and graduate student awards. A limited number of tuition scholarships are available for full-time MS and PhD candidates.

Fellowships: Qualified pre-doctoral students are invited to apply for fellowships and traineeships that carry stipends of $20,000 for twelve months in 2013-14. Fellowships are renewable annually based on the availability of funds and satisfactory performance toward the degree. Fellowships and traineeships are competitive.
