The Department of Mathematics offers
a package of financial support for all doctoral students who are
admitted to and remain in good academic standing within the Program,
for a period of five years. PhD students are typically supported
during these five years through Course, Teaching and Research Assistantships. Ample opportunities are provided for participation
in teaching calculus and related courses. Teaching is, in fact,
considered an important component of graduate training.
The stipend for Academic Year 2011-2012
(excluding summer support) ranges from $7,760 to $8,164 per quarter
depending on the duties assigned. There is also tuition support for ten units per quarter (the maximum for which holders
of an Assistantship can register during the academic year). Funding
is not guaranteed for any student beyond the fifth year of study.
