Requirements & Guidelines for Receiving Stipends

  1. Only students working towards the doctorate degree are eligible for stipends.
  2. The student must be enrolled full-time for the entire year.
  3. The student must maintain a GPA of at least 3.0 and maintain good academic standing.
  4. Normally, students receiving stipends are not employed and are expected to work full-time at CHS.  However, eligible students receiving another source of income may apply for stipends.  For example, students employed as instructors in the biomedical sciences (e.g., adjunct instructors at TCC) are eligible for stipends.  However, these students should not teach more than one course per semester.
  5. Students are strongly encouraged to apply for extramural funding by the end of the first year of stipend support, and if necessary, each year thereafter.
  6. Full stipends will not be extended beyond 5 years.
