Stipend/Financial Support

The BBSP program and UNC offer full financial support to all our graduate students.  This support includes a yearly 12 month stipend, health insurance, tuition and student fees.  Financial support is guaranteed during training for any student in good academic standing.   UNC has many externally funded training programs that provide stipend support for some students in their 2nd, 3rd or sometimes 4th year. UNC also encourages students to apply for extramural fellowships; we provide workshops, advice, and assistance, and many of our students compete successfully for prestigious independent funding from the NIH, the National Science Foundation, the American Heart Association, the American Society for Microbiology, etc.
