MS in Biology: Financial Assistance

Most students in the MS in Biology degree program receive funding. The Graduate School awards several stipends and tuition scholarships to qualifying students.

The stipend for 2010–2011 is $16,000 per year for a maximum of two years with a full tuition scholarship for 30 credit hours. Fully-funded students will also receive Health Insurance for two years. These awards are allocated on a competitive basis. Qualification for support is determined by GPA and GRE scores as well as a personal statement and three letters of recommendation.

Although applications for Fall Semester admission are due June 1, students should apply by February 1 to be considered for stipends and tuition scholarships. Only students who have submitted complete applications by that time will be considered.

Other sources of funding for graduate students include individual faculty grants, the Illinois Academy of Sciences, the Illinois Minority Graduate Incentive Program and student loans.
