The NIH Biotechnology Training Program funds will cover the student’s Stipend (current NIH rate of $23,844). The faculty advisor is responsible for the stipend supplement. The normal period of funded tenure will be two years, with an additional year of unfunded participation in program activities in the student’s 4th year in residence.
A portion of the Tuition Costs are covered by this grant. It is up to each department whether the faculty member must supplement the tuition.
Individual MIT Health Insurance funds are also provided to the trainee while appointed to this program.
Funds are available annually for travel to interdisciplinary conferences.
