Financial Aid

To support their educational expenses (tuition and stipend) the School of Medicine encourages all applicants to apply for graduate fellowships from appropriate U.S. and international agencies.  If accepted to a Ph.D. program in the School of Medicine, applicants unable to obtain external support will be considered for financial aid in the form of a tuition scholarship, health insurance, and a stipend to cover living expenses.  The stipend for the 2018-2019 academic year is $32,894 (unless otherwise noted*).  The tuition is $53,400.

*Applicants to the Medical and Biological Illustration, History of Medicine, Applied Health Sciences Informatics, Health Sciences Informatics, and the Post Baccalaureate Certificate in Clinical Informatics graduate programs should contact the program directly for specific information regarding funding. 

*International applicants please note - most financial assistance provided by the School of Medicine is federal financial assistance that is available only to U.S. citizens and permanent residents.  International applicants who are not U.S. citizens or permanent residents are not  eligible for U.S. government funding.  For this reason, we strongly advise international students to apply for external funding.

The Office of Financial Aid only provides assistance with U.S. government sources of funding.  Inquiries regarding financial aid may be addressed to:
