Biostatistics PhD Students
The Department of Biostatistics provides full financial aid for approximately 55 PhD students per year. The most common form of financial aid is as a graduate student researcher (GSR). A GSR is expected to work as a teaching assistant and/or student researcher working on one of the many funded research projects maintained by either the Department of Biostatistics or collaborators in other departments. Currently the stipend is $2,190 per month and includes a tuition waiver and medical benefits.
Biostatistics MS Students
The department awards financial aid to applicable MS students at the time of admission. Many MS students obtain jobs in the University or surrounding area performing data analysis and other statistical tasks. The department circulates job advertisements when available to all students.
