WE CAN HELP!
Find out how to get funding for your graduate education in the biomedical or behavioral sciences from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences, part of the National Institutes of Health.
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS
We give grants to schools to support some of the best graduate research training programs in the country.
You apply to a school’s graduate program and if accepted, you could get tuition, a stipend and other funds for your educational expenses.
If you are a U.S. citizen, noncitizen national or permanent resident who wants to pursue a Ph.D. or M.D.-Ph.D. in biomedical or behavioral research, you may be eligible for support on one of our training grants.
Our goal is to develop an outstanding scientific workforce that reflects the diversity of the U.S. population, so we encourage students who are members of groups that are underrepresented in the biomedical, clinical, behavioral and social sciences to apply to our training programs. Underrepresented groups currently include African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Native Americans and Alaska Natives, natives of the U.S. Pacific Islands, and individuals with disabilities.
KNOW YOUR PH.D. AREA?
We have more than 230 programs across the country that train about 2,100 Ph.D. students each year in 11 research areas:
