Financial Aid

All students in the Ph.D. program hold research assistantships and receive a stipend that is paid during their graduate training.

In addition, those applicants who meet the departmental criteria will also be eligible to receive the F.E. Shideman Merit Award for Outstanding Pharmacology Students. This award was established by the Department of Pharmacology to recognize outstanding new students entering our graduate program and is a one-time financial award of $1,000-$3,000.

Several other scholarship programs are also available through the University of Minnesota Graduate School.
