Financial Support

All students in the Interdepartmental Graduate Program in Dynamical Neuroscience who are in good academic standing and making satisfactory progress toward the degree can expect financial support while at UCSB. We offer financial packages that are competitive with other major institutions, in the form of a combination of fellowships, graduate student researcher and teaching assistantships. After the first year of study, students typically are supported through their faculty mentor's research grants as Graduate Student Researchers with a stipend plus payment of fees, tuition and health insurance. Continuing graduate students are eligible to apply for campus-based fellowships as well as off-campus fellowships to supplement their teaching or research assistantship income.
