Program Funding

The Institute for Public Health Genetics does not guarantee funding for any of it’s three degrees, however there are many opportunities across the university for students to secure partial or full funding during their time studying at the Institute. The majority of IPHG students seeking funding, are able to secure at least partial funding while studying.

Teaching Assistantships

The Institute has at least two half-time TA positions available each quarter. TAs are an integral part of our undergraduate teaching program and offer graduate students experience teaching and working with faculty.

TAs are recruited to support undergraduate courses in autumn, winter, and spring quarters. Open TA opportunities are advertised to current students prior to each quarter and applications are reviewed in a competitive selection process. TA positions are 20 hours per week and provide a three month salary (Graduate School Pay Schedule), a tuition waiver (except for some mandatory student fees), and GAIP health insurance for the quarter of the appointment.

Research Assistantships

Though the Institute does not offer any RAs directly, members of the Institute’s faculty frequently have opportunities for RAs. Open RA applications are sent to students as they are available. Additionally, at the request of an admitted student, IPHG will make CVs and Resume’s available to IPHG faculty should they have available RA positions that match a student’s research interest and experience.

RA positions vary from 10 to 20 hours per week and provide a three month salary (Graduate School Pay Schedule). Depending on the hours per week of specific student employment roles, a tuition waiver (except for some mandatory student fees), and GAIP health insurance for the quarter(s) of the appointment may also be included.
