Doctoral students receive funding, which includes full tuition, healthcare benefits, and a stipend. The first year of funding comes directly from PIBS. Then Pharmacology coordinates funding through graduation from a wide variety of sources.
Many second year students are appointed to institutional T32 training grants, including the Pharmacological Sciences Training Program (PSTP), Systems and Integrative Biology (SIB), and the Human Genetics Training Grant. It is also common for senior students to secure individual fellowships after writing an F31 proposal in Pharmacology 502 - Introduction to Scientific Communication.
