Once enrolled in the program, students receive support through a series of grant writing courses. The required research rotations also assist students in identifying funding relationships with faculty.
Statement of Support
Selected students will be eligible for 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 and exploring individual grant opportunities.
Students can begin exploring and applying for extramural grants before enrolling in the PhD program.
