Students admitted to the MCB program must have a Major Professor.  The Major Professor is primarily responsible for student support through grant-funded GRAs, GTAs or other resources.  

Incoming students can be nominated by MCB Faculty for competitive funding opportunities for financial student support in the first year of graduate study.  These opportunities include the competitive university Provost’s Fellowship and the MCB Program Graduate Research Awards.

Visit the Graduate School's website for more detailed information on assistantships and financing your graduate education.
