Currently, our program is set up to pay fellowships on a 9-month basis for the first 5 years. Summer funding is guaranteed in summers 1 and 2 of the program. Students who no longer have guaranteed summer funding are encouraged to apply for competitive funding both internally and externally. All students must have proof of health care, and the program is prepared to cover the cost of up to 6 years of health insurance if needed.
