Financial Information

A separate application for financial assistance is not required as we offer full financial support to all admitted students. We provide this full financial support, via either a teaching or research assistantship. Support packages are the same for both foreign and domestic students, and are offered for the duration of the graduate education period, contingent upon reasonable progress toward the degree. ALL graduate students are eligible for in-state tuition and fees.


The Biology graduate stipend for 2022 is approximately $27,300.


For both GRA and GTA students, tuition is paid in full. GRA students receive an additional salary amount equal to the cost of tuition and fees, while for GTA students, tuition and fees are paid by the Division of Biology.


All graduate students receive an excellent healthcare package. Current information about the graduate student healthcare package can be found in The Kansas State University Office of Human Resources.
