Graduate Funding

All new students will receive stipends of $28,000 per year with a $1,000 enrollment bonus. After year one, all students receive a $29,000 annual stipend.

Full tuition and fee payments and student health insurance are provided to all students.

Stipend levels are reviewed every three years and market adjustments made if warranted.

Affordable housing is easily available close to the University and the Tampa area has one of the lowest cost-of-living rates in the country.

Students are encouraged to apply for funding from outside sources. The Program Director will have a list of relevant granting agencies and can provide this to interested students. Outside employment for students receiving stipends is prohibited.
