Advanced Dental Education

Oral Epidemiology PhD Program - Financial Aid/Stipends

Depending on the year in which application is made, financial aid is available for a limited number of candidates from a National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR) training grant. US citizenship or permanent resident status is required for eligibility. Aid is available in the form of a stipend (amount depends on previous years of experience --- see below), tuition and fees, individual (not family) health insurance, and a travel allowance. Applicants who are not eligible for the NIDCR training grant may be able to qualify for financial aid through the Department of Epidemiology, but such aid cannot be guaranteed prior to enrollment.

For students supported by the NIDCR training grant, stipends for fiscal year 2013-2014 are:

Years of Experience
0 $ 39,264
1 $ 41,364
2 $ 44,340
3 $ 46,092
4 $ 47,820
5 $ 49,884
6 $ 51,582
7 or more $ 54,180

In addition to the annual stipend, trainees will receive graduate student health insurance coverage and an annual travel allowance to attend a scientific meeting. Trainees enrolled in degree-granting programs will receive tuition & fees.
