Fellowships and Awards

Students admitted into the Ph.D. in Biomedical Sciences program are considered for one of several fellowships based on academic merit. Ph.D. students have access to many tools and resources that enable them to pursue internal and external options for funding their graduate studies.

University Graduate School (UGS) Fellowships

The UGS is committed to excellence in graduate education and is proud to offer fellowship opportunities for new and continuing students. It is important to note that funding for the fellowships is limited and very competitive. Students must submit a completed application before the stated deadlines to be considered for specific fellowships.
