All current full-time students in our doctoral program are being financially supported. Support usually consists of the following:
- A University Fellowship: a stipend of $22,830 for ten months (in the 2017-2018 academic year) plus a full-tuition scholarship (tuition remission). For first year students, this fellowship requires minimal duties; all first-year students receive a University Fellowship.
- If you qualify for financial support and if you make normal progress toward your degree, the aid will usually be renewed for a total of five years.
Other forms of support are:
- Research Assistantships
- NSF support
It is important to recognize that financial support should not be a major concern when you are considering graduate study towards a PhD in the Washington University in St. Louis Department of Mathematics and Statistics. Generally speaking, if you are admitted to our PhD program, you will be supported. Note that not only is the financial support we give on the high end of what other universities offer, but St. Louis is a fairly inexpensive place to live.
