Cost & Funding Opportunities
The Vanderbilt Ph.D. in Health Policy program is committed to offering full financial support to students including tuition, insurance, and fees, in addition to their annual stipend of $32,500* for all four years. This stipend should comfortably cover the cost of books, supplies, and cost of living in Nashville.
Additional Funding Opportunities
Students will also have the opportunity and support to explore federal training programs and research funding opportunities through local partnerships and foundations. To the extent possible, the Program will match students to mentors with relevant R01 and other support, transitioning students from institutional to external funding sources in the dissertation phase.
