Cost of Study

All students in the Department of Pharmacology and Experimental Neuroscience graduate program receive fellowship support for their entire graduate training period.

Stipends for the first year are provided by either the department or Biomedical Research Training Program (BRTP). Stipends for subsequent years are provided by the research advisor or through various internal and external fellowship.

Students are encouraged to seek support from outside the department as well, either from UNMC campus graduate fellowships or from external funding agencies such as the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, and disease-specific agencies such as the American Heart Association or the Alzheimer's Disease Association . Students who obtain off-campus fellowship support are rewarded with supplemental funds as well as the experience of applying for external research support, which is a valuable part of training for a career in biomedical research.

Stipends are currently $24,000 per year, more than adequate for comfortable living in Omaha.
