Graduate Student Researcher (GSR) Stipends
Graduate students should consult regularly with their faculty advisers regarding financial support. Some labs routinely fund their PhD students via extramural funds, such as NIH or NSF grants. A fully funded Graduate Student Researcher (GSR) allocation will include funds for the stipend, fees and GSHIP on a quarterly basis. The recommended PhD stipend level for 2016-17 is $7500/quarter. Masters students conducting research can also be paid as a GSR, but there is no recommended stipend rate (again, all graduate students should consult regularly with their research adviser with regard to GSR support levels and quarters).
