Graduate Stipend

All graduate students receive a full-tuition grant and 12-month stipend, ($35,000 for 2015-2016) which permits comfortable (although perhaps not luxurious) living in the Cambridge/Boston area.

Graduate Fellowships

Applicants are also encouraged to apply for graduate fellowships from organizations such as the National Institutes of Health through their website,; the National Science Foundation; and the Office of Naval Research. The MIT Office of the Dean for Graduate Education (ODGE) also has information on a large number of external fellowship opportunities.
