Graduate

Through  program-, departmental-, and faculty-funded research assistantships, and University and other fellowship programs, the Program in Genetics has funding opportunities for qualified applicants to the Graduate Program. Supplemental funding is also available from the NC State University Graduate School Diversity Programs for individuals from under-represented groups.

Current graduate student support packages can include a stipend, tuition, and health insurance.
