Financing Your Education

Costs

The student tuition and fees for the PhD program are posted by the Office of the Registrar and are subject to change each year. The fees do not include the cost of books, housing, personal expenses and research expenses.

Financial Support

Selected students will be eligible for IGHS tuition support with a stipend, which will vary with the need and number of students accepted. The amount of this tuition support and stipend will be determined as part of the admissions process, and students will receive a personalized financial support statement at the time of admission.

Students are strongly encouraged to seek independent funding by contacting UCSF faculty in their areas of interest for Graduate Student Research (GSR) positions and by exploring individual grant opportunities. More information about available funding opportunities is on the UCSF Graduate Division Financial Support website.
