Funding

Scholarships/Fellowships - The Bioengineering graduate admissions committee nominates applicants for University and School of Engineering scholarships and fellowships based on academic merit and other selection criteria, as specified by the fellowship selection committees.

Self Graduate Fellowship https://selfgraduate.ku.eduNew Self Graduate Fellows for 2018-2019 will receive annual support of $30,500 for four years. Payment is through appointment as a graduate research assistant, or occasionally as a graduate teaching assistant. The fellowship covers tuition, fees, and the employer's share of student health insurance costs. Over the four years, Fellows have access to a $5,500 professional development award. All fellows must actively participate in the Fellow Development Program. The total value of the four-year doctoral fellowship exceeds $175,000. The 35 current Self Graduate Fellows are among 178 students who have benefited from the fellowship since it was established in 1989.

Graduate Teaching Assistantships (GTAs) - Teaching Assistantships are available and are awarded competitively based on academic qualifications. You do not need a separate application to be considered.

Graduate Research Assistantships (GRAs) - Students work with their potential academic advisor/mentor to obtain a funded position on a research project at the time of matriculation or within the first year.  It is NOT required for prospective students to have KU faculty pledge a GRA position prior to your admission.
