We typically offer two years of financial support for the M.A. and M.A.T., and six years of support for the Ph.D., through grading, teaching, and fellowships.
Most Mathematics graduate students receive support by means of a fellowship, associate instructorship, or graduate assistantship. Tuition is remitted for associate instructors, graduate assistants, and most of our students receiving fellowships.
When you apply for admission to the program as a graduate student you will be considered at the same time for financial support in one of its three forms: fellowship, associate instructorship, or graduate assistantship.
- A student with a fellowship has no work responsibilities.
- An associate instructor (AI) will either teach undergraduates directly or assist in teaching. Associate instructors receive a higher stipend than graduate assistants because they have direct contact with undergraduates.
- A graduate assistant (GA) aids instruction by grading homework and exams.
- Both AIs and GAs work up to 16 hours per week while classes are in session during the Spring and Fall semesters. Consult the Conditions for Financial Support for rules concerning associate instructorships and graduate assistantships.
