Funding predominantly covers graduate student salary, their tuition, faculty salary beyond the academic year, travel to conferences, and lab materials. The university receives around 50% of the direct cost as overhead to cover buildings and administration. Together, these cost accumulate to a little less than $100k per student and year.
