Financial Aid and Fellowships
The Center for Biochemistry and Biophysics has recently instituted higher stipends, $20,000/yr, for graduate students participating in the programs of the Center for Biochemistry and Biophysics. Specifically, this means that the Center will provide a $7,000 supplement to the regular $13,000 Teaching or Research Assistant annual stipend. During the first summer a prospective graduate student is expected to participate in lab rotations through our biochemistry laboratories. Contingent on theacademic and research performance in the first year, a $20,000 research assistantship requiring no teaching will be provided. Graduate students in the Center additionally will enjoy a tuition wavier.
This nationally competitive stipend combined with very reasonable cost of living at Albany, as compared to a relatively high cost of living in major metropolitan areas such as New York City, Boston, and San Francisco will make it easy for graduate students to effectively complete their educational goals. The goal of the Center is to recruit high quality graduate students and researchers to participate the dynamic and multidisciplinary research programs at the Center of Biochemistry and Biophysics.
