Financial Support

The Department offers approximately 55 teaching assistantships and several non-service fellowships. Assistantships for Masters students range from $9,200-$10,000 for the nine month academic year, and they are $15,231 for Ph.D. students for the nine month academic year. Non-service fellowships are $19,039 for the calendar year. Summer support ranging from $1,600-$2,600 is also available. New and incoming students are encouraged to participate in our Summer Fellowship Program which begins the last week of June and carries a stipend of $2000 for the six week session. In addition, a tuition scholarship is given to students receiving a stipend from the department.

About 95% of our full-time graduate students are fully funded and all continuing graduate students requesting summer support received funding this past summer. Women and minorities are especially encouraged to apply (over 50% of our funded graduate students are women and/or minorities). Current graduate students find these Department assistantships ample for their year round expenses due to the low cost of living in Bowling Green.

All classes taught by the Department are small individual sections of 30 or fewer students -- we offer no large lecture classes. Teaching assistants are assigned small individual classes in calculus, pre-calculus, or statistics (MATH 1300 and below). This involves four to six contact hours per week with undergraduate students.
