CMB Training Program

Tuition and Benefits

The Cell and Molecular Biology Training Program supports a stipend at the NIH-mandated rate in addition to tuition and health insurance as long as sufficient funds are available. Supplemental stipend is provided by a student’s home department. Other elective fees are the responsibility of the trainee and are not paid by the Cell and Molecular Biology Training Program.

Travel Awards

Requests for travel funds are available from CMB staff and online. Travel funds are available each year on a 1st-come, 1st-served basis. Travel requests are reviewed and approved based on the application and availability of funds. Trainees are encouraged to apply as early as possible to allow sufficient time for review of the request and for prepayment of airline tickets and registration fees. The maximum allowed is $300 per year of appointment and must be used during the trainee’s appointment period.
