Mathematics Department awarded GAANN grant

The Mathematics Department has been awarded a GAANN grant (Graduate Assistance in Areas of National Need) by the Department of Education, their third consecutive successful application. The grant supports graduate students in the department with fellowships along with a substantial institutional payment. The $533,000 grant runs for three years, funding four students per year.

“We are very pleased by the recognition of the quality of our graduate program implicit in the award of this grant, and appreciate the support that was given to us in the application process,” said Daniel Ruberman, professor of mathematics.

This GAANN program provides fellowships, through academic departments and programs of IHEs, to assist graduate students with excellent records who demonstrate financial need and plan to pursue the highest degree available in their course study at the institution in a field designated as an area of national need.
