The UC Davis Neuroscience Graduate Group provides financial support, fees and tuition for all students who are admitted to the program and then guarantees funding for every student who continues to make satisfactory progress. Ph.D. students in the Neuroscience Graduate Group are paid a stipend that is competitive with other comparable programs in the nation. Current stipend (for living expenses) is ~$37,728 per year. On admission, the Graduate Group commits to supporting new students with two quarters of full support, including in-state tuition, health insurance (if needed), Non-Resident Supplemental Tuition (if applicable), and a stipend. Once students have joined a major professor's laboratory, the faculty member commits to continuing that level of support.
