Financial Aid

All students admitted to the Ph.D. program receive financial support based on satisfactory academic progress.

Most financial aid is in the form of Graduate Research Assistantships, which are awarded by the Admissions Committee on a competitive basis. For 2015-16, these assistantships include:

Stipend: $26,716

Health insurance including dental and vision plans: $5,279

Tuition (for a maximum of 22 credits per year):  $17,428 for Michigan residents, $31,343 for non-residents

No teaching is required. Currently, Graduate Research Assistantships are funded by the IBS program of the School of Medicine for the first two years. Additional support in the third and subsequent years is usually provided by the student’s research advisor, and in some instances by Rumble Fellowships awarded by the Graduate School.
