The Department of Genetics is unable to provide financial aid or research/teaching assistantships to students. However, it does award some scholarship funding in the form of a monthly stipend to genetic counseling students. The amount of the stipend is determined yearly (currently $10,000.00 distributed over a 21 month period) and will be shared with applicants at the time of their interviews.

In addition, the costs of the online embryology course and the CWRU Technology fee of $426.00 per year are covered by the department. Moreover, students receive funds to cover the costs associated with their research projects and second-year students receive funds to travel to the National Society of Genetic Counselors' annual education conference held in the fall.

Other forms of financial aid are available to graduate students. The university has extensive information regarding financial aid and scholarship opportunities to assist students in funding their education.
