All students admitted to the PharmD-PhD dual degree program will receive a Dean's Scholarship during the PharmD component of the dual degree program (up to three years).
During the PhD component of the program, students in the PharmD-PhD dual degree program will receive a stipend while completing the PhD requirements.
All PhD students receive financial support at a standardized level (US$50,203 a year stipend for 2024–2025); all tuition and fees are paid by the Program as well (US$21,073 per year for California residents and US$15,102 for non-residents for the 2024-2025 academic year).
A stipend will begin when the PharmD-PhD student becomes a full-time graduate student, usually the fall quarter of the fourth year at UCSF.
Once enrolled in the PhD program, students are discouraged from outside employment, which could affect their completion of program requirements in a timely manner. The Graduate Division has set maximum hours of outside employment or professional activity allowed while a full-time student.
