Financial support is provided to all graduate students in Pharmaceutical Sciences through a combined mechanism of fellowships, research assistantships (RA), and teaching assistantships (TA). Some students may qualify for predoctoral campus-based traineeships on a variety of federally funded training grants.
Funding packages for first-year graduate students in the Pharmaceutical Sciences PhD Program are provided by the School of Pharmacy (for the first academic year), and typically consist of a mixture of fellowship and/or TA support. In addition, first-year students typically receive a $1500 relocation allowance typically paid in October; this money may be spent at the student’s discretion. Beginning in the summer of the first graduate year, students are supported by their faculty advisor via RA appointments, or via a combination of RA and TA appointments. Some project assistantships are available in the school’s Analytical Instrumentation Center and in the Zeeh Pharmaceutical Experiment Station.
All Pharmaceutical Sciences graduate students receive a stipend (the recommended level for graduate students in the division is $28,000 for 2020-21), full tuition remission (i.e. tuition is not the student’s responsibility), and low cost options for individual or family comprehensive health insurance, life insurance, and supplemental medical coverage.
