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.

Biology MS Funding Package

The MS in Biology funding package includes a $24,000 per year stipend, full tuition and health insurance. This funding package is renewable for a second year pending academic progress.

This fund is allocated on a competitive basis. Qualification for support is determined by GPA, personal statement, three letters of recommendation, and research experience.

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.

External Assistance

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.
