Department of Mathematics
at University of Texas at Arlington
has several fellowships for qualified students to pursue
a Ph.D. degree in Mathematical Sciences.
These prestigious GAANN (Graduate Assistance in Areas of National Need) fellowships
have been provided by grants awarded to our department
by the U.S. Department of Education. Each of our GAANN fellows receives
(depending on individual need as determined by the FAFSA
application) plus educational expenses to cover tuition, fees, and
certain other expenses.
Our GAANN fellowships are for U.S. citizens or permanent residents to pursue a Ph.D. degree in our department. These fellowships are awarded on a competitive basis to outstanding
applicants satisfying the eligibility criteria. The fellows are expected to obtain their Ph.D. degrees within fives years from
the start of the fellowship.
Women and minorities are particularly encouraged to apply. In selecting
our GAANN fellows we do not discriminate based on gender, race, national origin, color, disability, or age.
A GAANN fellowship
applicant must fill out the online FAFSA
(Free Application for Federal Student Aid) form. The Federal School Code
for the University of Texas at Arlington is 003656, which should be indicated
in step 6 of the FAFSA form. Once the FAFSA form is processed, a Student Aid Report (SAR) will be generated.
The applicant must send a copy (a photocopy or an e-mail copy is acceptable) of the resulting SAR to
Prof. Tuncay Aktosun
to Prof. Jianzhong Su
The applicant must also apply to the Ph.D. program
in our department. For this purpose the applicant
should contact Prof.
Hristo Kojouharov (e-mail: email@example.com),
who is our Graduate Program Director. There is no separate GAANN application needed
in order to be considered for a GAANN fellowship (besides the SAR and the completion
of the application to our Ph.D. program).
The decision of awarding a GAANN fellowship may be made simultaneously when
the admission decision is made to our Ph.D. program, or it can be made
after joining our department as a doctoral student.

you may contact
