Stipend, Tuition & Insurance

All students who enter the IBiS program receive full tuition support and a stipend as long as they maintain good academic standing. The IBiS program awards funding in the form of fellowships and assistantships. The stipend for the academic year 2021-22 is $34,176 which will be paid out over a twelve-month period.

Health Insurance

The Graduate School subsidizes the health insurance premium for the student plan offered by Northwestern University in full. For information on the current health insurance plan, please refer to Student Health Insurance. IBiS graduate students may also be reimbursed for dental plans offered through Delta.

Insurance plans through a private provider, including those through parents and domestic partners, are not covered by TGS or IBiS. Proof of insurance coverage (NU or private insurance coverage) will need to be produced.
