All graduate students in Pharmacology are provided a stipend, currently $29,000. UNC-CH tuition and fees and health insurance are also covered. This support is derived from a National Institutes of Health (NIH) Training Grant, from scholarships, and from department funds.

Every student in our program is expected to devote full time to research and graduate studies, 12 months per year (allowing time for vacation and holidays). For this reason, students do not undertake regular outside employment.
