Fellowships within the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry

While nearly all full-time graduate students are supported by 12-month research or teaching assistantships with base stipends of $21,000 for Ph.D. students and $17,000 M.S. students (plus health insurance and remission of tuition charges), a small number of enhanced stipends are available to qualified applicants.

In addition, the department also has a limited number of special fellowships available to qualified students. A brief description of these fellowship programs can be forund below:

  • The Meyerhoff Graduate Training Program (Meyerhoff Fellows): The Meyerhoff Graduate Training Program was established to further graduate education and training among minority groups that are underrepresented the the biomedical sciences. This program is supported by the Minority Biomedical Research Support (MBRS) Branch of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) through the Initiative for Minority Student Development (IMSD) Program. Additional information is available at the program website.

  • Chemistry/Biology Interface: The CBI program is a rigorous course of study leading to the Ph.D. degree in which significant advanced coursework is taken in both Chemistry and Biology. Additional information is available on the CBI Program website.
