Financial Support

All graduate students accepted into our program receive some form of financial support. This support includes training grant fellowships funded by either our Alcohol Training Grant or our NIEHS Toxicology Training Grant, research assistantships funded by faculty research grants, teaching assistantships funded by the College of Pharmacy, and individual fellowship awards. Postdoctoral training is supported by the Alcohol Training Grant, individual faculty research grants, and fellowship awards from various granting agencies. Graduate student stipends are highly competitive and most include tuition payments. The Center for Molecular and Cellular Toxicology provides additional assistance to the highest qualified applicants.

For more information about additional sources of financial aid, visit the College of Pharmacy Financial Aid web page.

Research Assistantships

Research assistantships are a fundamental part of our graduate training program. These assistantships allow you to conduct research as a faculty apprentice. This financial support includes a salary and tuition expenses. RA appointments are arranged with individual faculty and not the graduate group as a whole. It is very important that you research our faculty and their interests carefully in order to determine who you may be interested in working with in the future.

Teaching Assistantships

Teaching assistant positions are offered in the College of Pharmacy. Those interested in a TA position should contact the department for additional information concerning which courses require teaching assistants.

Fellowship Awards

Grant and fellowship funding is usually restricted to students working with faculty associated with the specific grant. Contact the research faculty you are interested in working with for further information.
