Full Financial Support
SCBMB students have access to several training grants through the Gulf Coast Consortia. The Program provides an extremely competitive stipend every year that you are a student. In addition, health insurance and tuition are completely covered. Although your stipend is always guaranteed, we help--and encourage!--students to apply for outside funding. It's a great learning experience, particularly for those who plan to eventually run an academic lab. Plus, we make it worth your effort--the Dean recognizes every student who receives outside funding with an additional $2,000/yr. supplement, in addition to the stipend.
Other Types of Support
Although graduate school can be the most exciting time of your life, it can also be a bit stressful. Baylor makes sure that none of this stands in your way by providing an array of student support services. Our Ombudsman for the Graduate School, Dr. Shelley Sazer's goal is to grease the wheels of student life. Baylor College of Medicine also has a minority student advisor, a disabilities coordinator, and an international student advisor.

Great Living Accommodations
Most of our students--as well as our faculty--live within a few miles of the Medical Center, in the heart of the "inner loop" that serves as a city within a city. We do not provide housing for graduate students because a variety of outstanding housing options are readily available. Incoming students are provided with information to contact local apartment and housing locators to make the transition as smooth as possible for those new to Houston.
There are several residential neighborhoods all within easy reach of the medical center area either by Metro bus, bike ride, or the light rail public transportation system. Each neighborhood has a distinctive style-follow the links below to discover more about the city and what it has to offer!
