Financial Aid

If you are accepted as a graduate student in the Department of Biochemistry, you will receive a scholarship of about $24,000 per year to support your stay during training. In addition, we will pay for your tuition fees and medical benefits.  Students can also receive support in the form of fellowships or research assistantships which do not require teaching. Tuition remission is available for students who qualify and hold graduate assistantships. Mandatory student fees are paid for students holding fellowships or assistantships. 

Fellowships and traineeships. A number of restricted and unrestricted fellowships and traineeships are available to students at UNMC. To be eligible an applicant must be admitted to a graduate department or area with a degree objective. Students interested in applying for these fellowships should contact the Graduate Studies Office for information. Fellowship recipients are expected to devote full time to graduate study during the period of their appointment and may not engage in remunerative employment without the permission of the Dean for Graduate Studies. 

Assistantships.  Research assistantships are available from various departments within UNMC.  All inquiries regarding assistantships should be directed to the department. 

Loans. Students who need to borrow funds for college expenses should inquire at the Financial Aid Office, 402-559-4199 or Email: Paula Kohles.
