TUITION ASSISTANCE – NIOSH TRAINING GRANTS
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) provides funding for tuition and fees for full- and part-time PhD students and a partial stipend for full-time students through the Midwest Center for Occupational Health and Safety (MCOHS). Students have been funded through the MCOHS for more than three decades; however, awards are dependent on annual funding approval from NIOSH.
Student funding may also be available through the Graduate School, and research and teaching assistantships across campus.
