All students admitted to the IU Cell, Molecular and Cancer Biology PhD program receive some form of stipend to cover living expenses during the academic year and summer. Financial support is guaranteed for five years and may come in the form of a Teaching Assistantship, Research Assistantship, Training Grant or Fellowship. The University provides student health insurance.
Examples of financial support include:
