Financial Support

As a CWRU biomedical PhD student in laboratory based programs, you'll receive financial support throughout your studies. All tuition, fees, and health insurance are paid by the graduate programs, and you'll earn a stipend ($30,500 in 2020-21). 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.

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