Financial Support

Pharmacology graduate students will be supported for fiscal year 2012-13 with an annual stipend of $27,500.

In addition, graduate student fees and health insurance will be fully covered.  Non-resident tuition may be covered, if applicable, but is not guaranteed. Graduate support is largely provided through departmental and faculty research funds and training grant funds. However, a number of students have competed successfully for national fellowship awards.

Students are expected to devote their entire time to the pursuit of the degree and may not have outside employment. While students are not required to fulfill teaching functions, teaching opportunities may be available within the department upon request.

A special meritorious award, the Henry Wood Elliott Award, is also available each year to one selected senior graduate student.
