Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

Financial Information: Salary and Expenses

As an employee of LLNL, Livermore Graduate Scholars are paid an annual salary of $49,716 ($4,143/month).  In order to comply with visa requirements, foreign national students must work and be paid on a modified schedule.

Students are expected to spend their full energies on the thesis research supported under the appointment, and therefore may not accept additional fellowships or outside work without prior approval from LLNL. Such requests are normally approved only for financial hardship or extenuating circumstances.

The Livermore Graduate Scholars Program does not pay tuition expenses or provide medical/dental/vision benefits.
