Students admitted into the Neuroscience Graduate Program are guaranteed stipend support at the level of $40,000/year for five years, in addition to student health insurance and tuition assistance.
Students are required to submit a nationally-competitive predoctoral fellowship application by Fall semester of their third year of study and to participate in up to three (3) semesters of teaching assistantship during their programs. We will train our students in grant writing (NIH or NSF for domestic students, and local or national fellowships for foreign students). Support at the level of $40,000/year is guaranteed regardless of the students TA status or whether the student has been awarded a predoctoral fellowship. However, the yearly stipend may be increased, funds for travel to scientific meetings may be granted and funds for additional tuition assistance and/or additional health insurance may be provided with the award of certain fellowships or teaching assistantships.
