Funding & Support

ITiMS trainees receive tuition support and a stipend as part of a 50 percent graduate student research assistantship (GSRA). Financial support through an ITiMS traineeship generally is provided for 2 years.

ITiMS also provides research and travel support on a competitive basis to supported trainees, former trainees, and other graduate students actively participating in the program (see below).  We ask that students pursue other sources of funding in addtition to ITiMS (cost-sharing) such as Rackham Conference Travel Grant.
