Research Mentors and Funding

The Program in Public Health has agreements with various clinical and academic departments, many committing to provide funds for research-assistant stipends.

Funding is available to selected doctoral research assistants.  Upon matriculation into the PhD program, students will work 20 hours per week on research projects with a mentor within the sponsoring department. The student will be provided funding for both an in-state tuition waiver as well as a competitive stipend. The stipend will follow the National Institutes of Health pre-doctoral level of funding, and will be guaranteed for three years, assuming satisfactory academic progress.

Additional funding may be offered after three years at the discretion of the sponsoring clinical department. Students who are not selected for a research assistantship will have the option to self-pay.
