Financing Your Education

Biology Specific Financial Aid

Full-Tuition Scholarship for All Students
Students admitted to the biology program receive generous financial assistance from the Department of Biology. All admitted students receive a full-tuition scholarship for their graduate studies.

Teaching and Research Assistantships
Most graduate students are also awarded a teaching assistantship each semester, resulting in a stipend of approximately $9,000 per year.

All applicants admitted to the program, both U.S. and international students, are considered for these scholarships and assistantships when the admission applications are reviewed. There is no separate application for this financial assistance.
