Funding

Alec Gibson and John Neumaier

MSTP students receive funding for the full duration of their MD/PhD studies, either provided by MSTP or the student’s graduate department.

First and second year medical students receive a $28,200 annual stipend (2017-2018 academic year).

Graduate students and third and fourth year medical students receive a $32,568 annual stipend (2017-2018 academic year).

Funding packages include tuition waivers and health insurance. Stipends normally receive a 3-4% cost of living adjustment each year.

NIH F30 Fellowships

MSTP students are strongly encouraged to apply for individual pre-doctoral F30 fellowship opportunities offered by various NIH institutes. Students enjoy close to a 100% funding success rate. F30 fellowships are designed specifically for MD/PhD students and are transferable to medical school.

ARCS: Achievement Rewards for College Scientists

MSTP students are eligible to receive Achievement Rewards for College Scientists (ARCS) awards during their PhD studies. ARCS awards are valued at $17,500 payable over 3 years. These are additional funds beyond the MSTP stipend. ARCS recipients are nominated by MSTP leadership. For more information, please see the ARCS Seattle Chapter website.
