Graduate assistantships and full tuition scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis to Ph.D. students admitted into the BMS program. Graduate assistantship stipends range from $20,000 to $24,000 per year, and include comprehensive health insurance. Most students are supported on faculty research grants by the end of their first year of study.
Outstanding candidates may apply for a fellowship in biodefense and emerging infectious disease, which includes a competitive stipend, tuition, health insurance, and travel to scientific meetings. These fellowships are awarded to students who wish to receive a broad training in biodefense, emerging infectious disease, and epidemiology.
Doctoral students may also apply for a Diversity Teaching and Research Fellowship award, which is designed to foster a culturally, socially, and educationally diverse graduate student body. Individuals from cultural, racial, linguistic, and socioeconomic backgrounds currently underrepresented in graduate education are particularly encouraged to apply.
