MICaB Ph.D. Program

How much does it cost?

  • You get paid to earn your doctorate in the MICaB Program. Our current annual stipend is $29,000 in years 1 and 2; $30,000 in years 3, 4 and 5. This pays for your living expenses.

  • You do not have to pay tuition. We pay that for you.

  • The total annual cost of a graduate student in years 1-2 in the MICaB Program is $44,500.  The difference between the total cost and your stipend pays for your tuition, many fees, and fringe benefits such as health care.

  • The health care plan offered to graduate assistants is quite comprehensive and one of the best in the nation. Because the University picks up a significant portion of the tab, it is relatively inexpensive to you.
