Every year, many applicants qualify for a University Graduate Scholarship (UGS), which provides a partial tuition waiver. An estimate of the scholarship dollar amount is shared with the applicants when they are accepted into the Genetic Counseling Graduate Program. International students may qualify for UGS awards.
There are opportunities for students to receive a graduate assistantship (GA), a stipend to help pay for living expenses. Graduate assistantships are awarded to a limited number of students every year. Students funded with a GA stipend work for the program throughout the academic year, by assisting faculty with research projects, clerical tasks and/or teaching.
Other jobs are often available at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center or the University of Cincinnati. In the past few years students have had jobs in the hospital’s genetic testing laboratories, the Hereditary Cancer Program and other areas.
