Stipend and Tuition Scholarship

Students accepted into the IPBS PhD program are granted a Stipend from the Graduate School and also receive full Tuition Scholarship for 48 credit hours of coursework. In addition, beyond the 48 credit hours required for the PhD degree, students receive full remission of the cost each semester for Dissertation Supervision. This remission is in effect until degree completion. This support continues as long as the student remains in good academic standing in the program.

In instances where a student must repeat a required course, tuition for the repeated course must be paid by the student.

The stipend for 2014-2015 is $27,000 per calendar year, beginning in August, and is paid to the student in monthly installments.  Doctoral students also receive paid health insurance coverage as long as registration is maintained. 

Once the student chooses a laboratory for dissertation research, funding of the stipend continues from the resources of the Dissertation Advisor. As long as the student receives stipend support, the Graduate School provides full tuition remission.

Health Insurance

Integrated Program in Biomedical Science PhD students receive full health insurance coverage provided by the University as long as they remain in good academic standing.  This coverage is for health care beyond the level provided by the Student Health Services fee.  Visit Student Resources for more detailed information on health insurance.
