Financial Support

Financial Support

IGPBS students are provided with stipend support ($25,000 per annum currently / $26,500 per annum - starting in August 2017) throughout their PhD studies.  To compare how the cost of living in Omaha may compare to where you currently live, try looking online at a cost of living calculator. 

After the first year, students are encouraged to seek outside sources of stipend support by applying for fellowships, assistantships and grants.  Students that obtain a federal or foundation grant may be eligible to receive an annual stipend supplement of up to 25% of the current level of stipend support.

Cost of Study

Tuition is waived for IGPBS students.
