Basic Science Division PhD Programs

Full-time students enrolled in PhD programs in the Basic Science Division receive a full tuition scholarship and a stipend or research assistantship that is designed to cover living and educational costs incurred while enrolled in GSBS. Health insurance for the student and all fees except the Student Activity Fee are also covered. No separate financial aid form is required for this school-sponsored financial aid. On rare occasions, students in this division self-fund their education.
