Financial Support

All students accepted into GBS programs receive a competitive annual stipend and fully paid tuition and fees. Single coverage student health insurance is also provided at no cost to the student through VIVA Health UAB.

The annual stipend for the 2014-2015 academic year is $26,500. The total annual award value, including stipend, tuition, fees and health insurance is $38,000. Stipends are reviewed and updated regularly.

First-year students are funded through their entry programs by Graduate School Fellowships and occasionally by other national and University fellowships. In subsequent years, students are supported through their advisor's research grants, institutional funds or training grants. In addition, highly qualified students are encouraged to apply for individual fellowship awards, with the guidance of their advisors.
