Stipend and Benefits

As a Case Western Reserve University biomedical PhD student in laboratory-based programs, you'll receive financial support throughout your studies. Student support is derived from departmental funds, individual research grants to faculty members, and over two dozen NIH Training Grants won by faculty for the strength of our graduate programs.

Tuition & Fees 

All tuition & fees are paid by the graduate programs. 


BSTP students will earn a $31,000 stipend in the 2021-2022 academic year and $33,500 in the 2022-2023 academic year.

Additional Benefits 

Health insurance is provided for by the program. In addition, a $2,000 moving allowance is available to all matriculating students.

Fellowship Opportunities 

We also encourage you to prepare your own fellowship applications to support your work—many Case Western Reserve University graduate students have earned fellowships from the NIH, American Heart Association, and other agencies. For more information, visit our Fellowships and Grant Writing section.
