The 2019/20 entering stipend is $30,480 annually. The program covers tuition and fees (which includes health insurance). New students will also receive a $500 moving allowance to assist with relocation and a $1,000 travel allowance for the first year. After passing the qualifying exam, students receive a stipend of $32,004.
Students are encouraged to pursue individual fellowships after their first year. To this end, the NGP has approved a policy that increases a student's stipend to $35,000 annually if a student receives an individual fellowship that provides more than $20,000 in stipend funds.
