For students enrolled in the mathematics M.S. and Ph.D. programs, 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 Fall/Spring semester and is required to perform certain teaching duties during the academic year as stipulated by the department. Normally such duties consist of teaching 9 credit hours of lower-level undergraduate courses over the Fall and Spring semesters. To estimate your cost of attendance please go to the Bursar's website and use the Estimate Your Bill tool.
M.S. Students: For a student who has not passed the comprehensive examination, the fellowship consists of tuition grant in the amount of $3,500.00 per semester (Fall and Spring semesters only). After successful completion of the comprehensive examination, the amount of the tuition grant will increase to $4,500.00 per semester. Students will also receive compensation for teaching 9 credit hours at the level of a Graduate Part-Time Instructor. The current GTF compensation for teaching is $1,350.00 per credit hour for MS Students.
Ph.D. Students: Compensation for Ph.D. students is a combination of a tuition grant and pay for teaching. The current amount of the tuition grant for Ph.D. students is $6,950.00 per semester (Fall/Spring). Students will also receive compensation for teaching 9 credit hours at the level of a Graduate Part-Time Instructor. The current GTF compensation for teaching is $1,600.00 per credit hour for a Ph.D. student.
The renewal of the GTF for the following year is contingent upon satisfactory performance of in graduate coursework and teaching duties.
Applications for GTF positions are due APRIL 1st for the Fall semester and OCTOBER 31st for the Spring semester.
