Dear Somdatta 

Thank you for your query

Good to know that you are looking for a PHD in Microbilogy - it is a fascinating field to do reaseach

As you have rightly mentioned the entrance test requirements for PHD 

i.e GRE general test can be taken by September in the previous year prior to the applicaton intake ,followed by TOEFL test which is the language test and the Cell Biology or Biology Subject test conducted in Nov or Dec every year 

Admission and scholarships for PHD applicants are based on merit and the funds for the research area with the concerned faculty - hence getting a profile evaluation from them before you send the application is beneficial to bag any assistantships 

Fellowships are also available in exceptional cases but are typically reserved for Post doc research 

These fellowships cover the entire cost of the course.

Hope this answers your query 

All the best
