Molecular Biology Program

Funding Resources

The Program in Molecular Biology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine has traditionally been well-funded:

  • In 1989, the training program was awarded a $5 million Lucille Markey Charitable Trust award to be used over a 6-year period to provide needed initial funds that allowed the program to grow aggressively in its early stages.
  • In 1999, the Molecular Biology Program was awarded an NIH pre-doctoral training grant, which was renewed in 2004.  Currently, 5 students are supported by this grant annually.
  • Our faculty are successful and well-funded.  The Molecular Biology faculty members bring in excess of $20 million in individual grant funds to the University each year.
  • Many of our faculty are co-investigators on other training grants at the university.
  • Bolie endowment currently funds student travel to national/international meetings.
  • Several of our students have been successful in obtaining their own competitive pre-doctoral fellowship awards from various private and federal funding agencies.
  • Students entering the Molecular Biology Program are supported fully for tuition, health insurance and fees.  In addition, each student receives a $28,500 annual stipend.
  • The CU Financial Aid Office has various options to supplement student stipends. (see Graduate School site:  finances and support)
