Students in the BCB Graduate Program typically receive Assistantship funding for their entire PhD career. For first-year students, the BCB program either provides or obtains assistantship funding so students can take part in the rotations program. Beyond the first year, students' major professors either provide or help obtain financial support for their Ph.D. BCB students through a Research or Teaching Assistantship. Assistantship funding provides a monthly salary plus tuition and health insurance scholarships.
All graduate students admitted to the BCB program receive graduate assistantship support to take part in the BCB rotation program to determine the laboratory in which they will do research for their Ph.D. For Fall 2024, yearly assistantship stipend amounts will be $26,232. In addition to the assistantship, Ph.D. students receive full tuition and health care coverage.
