Program

Funding


MSTP students are supported for the full duration of their MD/PhD studies. Support is provided by the MSTP during medical school years and the student’s graduate department during PhD years. Support includes stipend, benefits, and tuition.

Stipend levels change frequently. In 2020-2021, first and second year medical students receive $31,416 annual stipend plus tuition, and PhD students and third and fourth year medical students receive $38,784 annual stipend plus tuition.

NIH F30 Fellowships

MSTP students are strongly encouraged to apply for individual pre-doctoral F30 fellowships from the NIH. Our students enjoy close to a 100% funding success rate. F30 fellowships are designed specifically for MD/PhD students and are transferable to medical school.

ARCS: Achievement Rewards for College Scientists

MSTP students are eligible to receive Achievement Rewards for College Scientists (ARCS) awards during their PhD studies. These awards supplement (that is, are in addition to) the MSTP stipend. ARCS awards are valued at $17,500 payable over 3 years. ARCS recipients are nominated by MSTP leadership. For more information, please see the ARCS Seattle Chapter website.
