All students receive an annual stipend for $25,000 (2013-14 rate) for a 12-month appointment. It is the intention of the program to continue to award this stipend as a research assistantship throughout the student's Ph.D. studies. During rotation the stipend will be funded by the department. Once the student has selected a lab, the primary investigator will fund the student from grant funding. To receive the stipend, the student must maintain full-time status of 8-12 credits per semester.
