As part of the application process, the Department of Mathematical Sciences offers graduate assistantships to qualified applicants in the doctoral programs. Assistantships are not typically offered to applicants in the M.S. programs. For more information, please contact either Dr. Bentuo Zheng, Coordinator of Graduate Studies (Mathematics), or Dr. Lih-Yuan Deng, Coordinator of Graduate Studies (Statistics).

Interested graduate students should complete the graduate assistantship application and return it to the department. Screening of applications for a graduate assistantship starts mid-February and continues until all positions are filled. In addition to a graduate assistantship, eligible students are encouraged to apply for Work Study by completing their FAFSA form before the Spring deadline. For information on other fellowships offered at the University of Memphis, please see the University's list of graduate awards & fellowships.
