Funding Opportunities

Graduate students enrolled in the Program of Microbiology and Immunology will receive a stipend, full tuition remission, and individual health insurance (with an option to purchase additional family coverage). The stipend is competitive ($29,500 for the 2017-2018 academic year) and given Pittsburgh's affordable cost of living, allows students to live comfortably. In addition, a $2,000 educational enrichment account is provided to each first-year PhD student for the purchase of books, computers, and other education-related expenses.

University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine Graduate Program in Microbiology and Immunology also has six current T32 training grants for pre- and post-doctoral trainees.
