Graduate Program - Financial Assistance

Teaching Fellowships are available through the Mathematics Department. Teaching Fellows who have earned fewer than 18 hours of approved graduate credit in mathematics are paid a stipend of \$17,478 per year. Graduate students with 18 or more hours are paid \$18,254.80 per year (some graduate school restrictions apply). PhD candidates who have completed all degree requirements except the dissertation are paid \$20,194 per year. Instructional duties normally consist of some combination of teaching, grading, and tutoring in the Math Lab.

Currently, tuition is fully covered for all supported graduate students.

For the 2019 - 2020 academic year, the United HealthCare annual insurance rate for individual students is $2775.

Further information can be found at the graduate advisor's webpage.
