For students enrolled in the Master of Science in Applied Mathematics program, the Department offers a limited number of Graduate Teaching Fellowships (GTF's). A student receiving a GTF must be enrolled in at least 6 credit hours of graduate level courses each semester and is required to perform certain teaching duties during the academic year as stipulated by the Department. Normally such duties consist of teaching 6 credit hours of lower level undergraduate courses per semester.
For a student who has not passed the comprehensive examination, the fellowship consists of a stipend of $3500 per semester (Fall and Spring semesters only) plus compensation for teaching 6 credit hours at the level of a lecturer. The current compensation for a lecturer is $802 per credit hour. After successful completion of the comprehensive examination, the stipend amount will be increased to $4500 per semester.
The renewal of the GTF to the following year is contingent upon satisfactory performance of the student in his/her graduate coursework as well as the assigned teaching duties.
To apply for a GTF, please submit the application form and arrange to have at least two letters of recommendation addressing your teaching experience and potential sent directly to
