Funding Available to MCP Students

Annual Stipend and Benefits

All students receive competitive stipends to cover living expenses. The benefits package also includes tuition remission and a choice of comprehensive health insurance plans which include medical, dental, and vision at a minimal cost. It is the same coverage offered to faculty and staff.

Training Grants

Many of our graduate students are supported by NIH training grants. Prospective students must be nominated by the MCP Admissions Committee or by faculty mentors to receive training grant support. Opportunities may also be available during the first semester of study, and students are encouraged to contact the MCP Program for assistance with the nomination process.
