GBS Student Financial Support
All students accepted into GBS programs receive an annual stipend and fully paid tuition and fees. Single coverage health insurance is also provided at no cost to the student through VIVA Health UAB. First‐year students are funded through their theme 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.
See Fellowships & Awards http://main.uab.edu/Sites/gradschool/students/current/funding/43720/ for additional fellowship information and resources.
Beginning in the 2012-2013 academic year, upon successful completion of requirements for admission to candidacy, the student’s annual stipend will increase by $1,000.
