The University of Georgia is home to more than 6,200 graduate students and has a total research expenditure in excess of $333 million. A great number of these students are working in the biological and biomedical sciences.
Graduate students enjoy unrestricted access to the immense and diverse resources of UGA and also enjoy the vibrant atmosphere of America's best college town!
See the links on our Athens info page for more about Athens.
If you know you're coming to the CTEGD, see our Orientation page.
Students are supported by a variety of mechanisms, including University Assistantships, Research Assistantships, Teaching Assistantships and Training Grants.
The level of the stipend support is nationally competitive. Exact figures vary depending on the department, percentage of time and program level.
Competitive supplements to the regular stipend are also available -see Financial Aid at the UGA Graduate School web site for details.
Most forms of support are accompanied by a tuition waiver
Interdisiplinary Life Sciences Program
The Interdisciplinary Life Sciences (ILS) Program is a new umbrella program through which students can apply to graduate school at UGA in several CTEGD-related areas. This program is specifically designed for top notch students with interdisciplinary interests. Applying through the Molecular, Cell and Development (MCD) Biology track of this program could provide a student with the broadest choice of potential CTEGD mentors in the Departments of Cellular Biology, Infectious Diseases, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and Genetics.
Graduate Application and Admission Process:
You cannot apply directly to the CTEGD, but rather to pursue studies with those faculty in CTEGD you need to apply to the UGA Graduate School and to the home department of the CTEGD faculty member with whom you would most like to study. Thus, there are two parts to your application:
- First, apply to the UGA Graduate School
- Second, apply to a CTEGD faculty member's home department.
1) UGA Graduate School
You must first apply to the Graduate School.
The Graduate School will need:
- Completed application form
- Payment of application fee
- Official transcripts
- Official GRE scorse (UGA, GRE code = 5813)
- or TOEFL/IELTS if English is not your primary language
