Financial Aid Information

As a Ph.D. student you will receive full financial support during your training, provided you remain in good academic standing, excel in research, and demonstrate satisfactory progress toward completion of dissertation research.

Such support includes:

  • $25,000 stipend
  • University tuition coverage and School scholarship
  • Student health insurance (hospitalization and disability)

You are responsible for student fees (not covered by the tuition waiver), which is around $650 for fall and spring semesters and $250 for the summer semester.

M.S. students are admitted without stipend support, but may be supported by their thesis mentor if funds are available in that laboratory. 

The provided $25,000 stipend will be factored into financial aid eligibility.

As a Ph.D. or M.S. student, you may be eligible for loans. Please visit the WVU Financial Aid Office for more information.
