Financial Support

The Department supports most full-time graduate students at the Ph.D. level. Financial support is available in the form of fellowships, traineeships, teaching assistantships, and research assistantships. Awarding of financial support is competitive, and stipends average $28,500.00 for the academic year, plus tuition and fees (tuition (Non resident fees) being covered for the first year only). Sources of funding include University fellowships and traineeships from a National Institutes of Health (NIH) training grant.  The Department does not offer financial support to students at the M.S./M.Eng. level. Such students are encouraged to seek information on how to fund their education from the sources listed on the "links" page of this section.
