Yes. You may apply to up to four programs for a single application fee. However, since we receive over 10 times more applicants than training positions we have available, we prioritize applicants who articulate why the BCMB program is specifically a good fit for their research interests and training goals.
We have a Financial Aid office to assist students who may need additional funds while attending school. After passing the qualifying exam, students may work up to 16 hours per week outside the university, pending approval by their advisor and the program director.
No, the MSTP program has its own set of requirements. Many students who are accepted in the dual program attend medical school for two years and then enter a PhD program. They return to medical school to finish their degrees once the PhD is completed.
We recognize that it can be financially burdensome to relocate to a new city to attend a PhD program. Students who are admitted to PhD programs at JHU can apply to receive a $1500 need-based grant to offset the costs of relocating to JHU. These grants provide funding to a portion of incoming students who, without this money, may otherwise not be able to afford to relocate to JHU for their PhD program.
This is not a merit-based grant. Applications will be evaluated solely based on financial need.
