Funding for graduate students in the MCB program includes tuition, a contribution to health insurance and a monthly stipend. During their first semester (while doing rotations), our students receive a stipend from the MCB program. During subsequent semesters, students are typically funded through their mentor’s external funding (Graduate Research Assistantship, GRA) or receive a departmental teaching assistantship (GTA).
In addition, we encourage our students to seek competitive, external funding.
The MCB program offers competitive travel awards.
