Fellowships

Applications completed by February 4th will be considered for one of three funding opportunities listed below. Applications should be completed by December 15th for consideration for campus fellowships.

Research Assistantship: The RA provides full financial support for graduate tuition, program-related fees, student health insurance and a competitive stipend. The RA requires at least 6 credits of degree-applicable coursework and 20 hours of thesis related research each semester in the laboratory of a BME faculty mentor. The RA is renewable for a second year assuming satisfactory progress toward completion of a MS thesis research project in BME and a minimum grade of "B" in all course work.

Graduate Assistantship: The GA provides full financial support for graduate tuition, program-related fees, student health insurance and a competitive stipend. The GA requires at least 6 credits of degree-applicable coursework and 20 hours of service to the BME department (e.g. laboratory supervision, leading recitation sections and/or undergraduate research teams.) The GA is renewable for a second year assuming a faculty mentor has been identified for completion of a MS thesis research project in BME and a minimum grade of "B" in all course work.

Teaching Assistantship: The TA provides partial financial support for expenses related to graduate tuition, program fees, student health insurance and/or living expenses. The TA requires at least 6 credits of degree-applicable coursework and up to 20 hours of service to the BME department (e.g. laboratory and/or recitation assistant, grading.) The TA is renewable each semester in response to available service opportunities in the BME department.

All applications completed by February 4th are given equal consideration for a limited number of RA and GA opportunities that are available each year. These fellowships are awarded to the students with skills and research interests that are most compatible with BME faculty at IUPUI. Applicants are strongly encouraged to clarify and explain their interest in the research activities of specific BME faculty when completing the application packet.
