Students in the Interdisciplinary Graduate Program in Immunology are eligible for financial support through a combination of training grants, scholarships, fellowships, University support, and revenue from the Carver Trust. Training grants come from the National Institute of Health, National Science Foundation, and Howard Hughes Medical Institute. These opportunities provide for long-term, stable funding for graduate students making satisfactory progress toward their degree.

Immunology students receive a guaranteed stipend ($34,500 in 2024 – 2025), full tuition, fees, and health insurance allowance. The University of Iowa Students are also encouraged to apply for extramural and University of Iowa Internal Fellowships. The University of Iowa Graduate College has many funding opportunities and resources to assist students with applications.

Interdisciplinary Immunology T32 Predoctoral Training Grant

Predoctoral training in immunology (T32AI007485) is supported by a T32 training grant from the NIH/National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and has been funded since 1995. The overall goal of our predoctoral T32 training program is to educate, train, and produce a new generation of excellent young immunologists, well-prepared to advance the science of immunology and their own independent careers in academic, educational, and industrial settings. The T32 predoctoral program and the larger Immunology Graduate Program at the University of Iowa have a robust history of successfully training students toward independent careers in immunology.
