All doctoral students in the Program of Molecular Pharmacology and Cancer Therapeutics receive financial support. The current stipend is $25,000 annually, plus a full tuition scholarship and health insurance coverage. Coupled with the low cost of living in Buffalo, this is a nationally competitive stipend award.
The Program holds a prestigious NIH T32 Training Grant to further support student stipends and student travel. At almost 40 years of continuous funding, the T32 grant of the Pharmacology Program is the longest running grant of its kind in the US.
Applicants are also considered for the prestigious Presidential graduate fellowships, which offer an additional stipend of $6,000 per year for the first four years of graduate school, as well as additional financial support for travel to scientific meetings and conferences.
