Graduate and Summer Programs at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory

17 October 2019

Students in the program are expected to graduate in four to five years. To this end, they receive extensive mentoring throughout, with an academic as well as a research mentor, and they complete their course work, rotations, and qualifying exam within the first year.

All students are fully funded by the School — stipends, tuition, and research costs — giving them the freedom to join any lab, irrespective of whether that lab has other funding for them. In addition, students receive subsidized housing and food, and full health benefits.
