The student stipend is currently $30,000 per year. Based on the rules of the UCD graduate school, all PhD students in good academic standing are guaranteed financial support.
Although a priority of the School of Pharmacy is to provide financial support to its graduate students, stipend, tuition and fees for graduate studies in the School of Pharmacy are the sole responsibility of the student. Payment of stipend, tuition and any fees by the School of Pharmacy or by grants, contracts or gifts to the School of Pharmacy Faculty is contingent upon satisfactory academic progress (as defined by the UCD Graduate School, Graduate Student Handbook) and completion of required core courses, seminars, research rotations and examinations. The School of Pharmacy also reserves the right to review and adjust its funding policies at any time. Stipends are awarded on a 12-month basis. All students are expected to work towards program requirements for 12 months of the year.
