Financial Support

All students admitted to the OSBP receive full financial support.  The OSBP offers Graduate Research Associate (GRA) positions and Fellowships for the first year and research advisors provide support in the following years. The stipend for 2016-2017 is $28,128.  Fellows will receive a stipend that matches or exceeds $28,128 annually for the duration of the fellowship.  Both GRA and fellowship positions include a waiver of tuition and academic fees.  Students can expect continued financial support while enrolled in the Ph.D. program as long as they are in good academic standing and making satisfactory progress toward the degree.

Students who wish to apply for university fellowships should check the appropriate box on the application form and submit a complete application by our fellowship deadlines.  The Admissions Committee will begin full reviews of applications in January and candidates from the first round of application reviews will be contacted to arrange interviews during February. Additional rounds of application reviews will be completed as needed until April.
