We are excited to announce funding opportunities available for students that apply by January 15.
  • The NSF Research Training Group (RTG) program advances mathematics through vertically-integrated groups combining faculty, postdoctoral fellows and PhD students.  Our group, SMU-RTG, focuses on nonlinear optics, computational and data-enabled neuroscience, and micro-and nanofluidics. PhD fellowships are available to U.S. Citizens and permanent residents and provide at least $30,000/year for three years. We hope to welcome 2 new RTG fellows in Fall 2024.
  • Haberman Continuing Fellowships provide $5000/year as a supplement to other funding, for up to 5 years. We will offer up to one fellowship in Fall 2024.

In addition, regular teaching assistantships and other top-up fellowships offered by the Moody Graduate School are available.
