The Dennehy Lab is actively seeking graduate students. Masters students matriculate through Queens College. Queens College also supports PhD students matriculating through The Graduate Center of the City University of New York. The CUNY Graduate Center will provide the first year of support for incoming PhD students, after which the mentor and campus become responsible for financial support. Incoming students will be offered guaranteed 5-year financial support packages including $30,000 stipend, a tuition waiver and health insurance.
