Graduate Degree Information

Applications

Although the WSU Department of Mathematics and Statistics will be accepting applications for Spring 2023, students are generally more successful starting in a fall semester due to the rotation of graduate courses and increased support for incoming students. Furthermore, we do not anticipate having any funding for spring admitted students.

The deadline for Spring 2023 consideration is August 10th. Apply now at:  gradschool.wsu.edu/apply/.

To be considered for an assistantship position, which comes with a tuition waiver and funding, please apply for Fall 2023. The application will open in September, and the deadline to apply for Fall 2023 is January 10th, 2023. The GRE is not required.

For more information about our graduate programs or the application process, please contact the graduate coordinator at: mathstat.gradinfo@lists.wsu.edu.

NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP)

The NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students who are pursuing research-based master's and doctoral degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) or in STEM education. The GRFP provides three years of support for the graduate education of individuals who have demonstrated their potential for significant research achievements in STEM or STEM education. The NSF expects to award 2,000 Graduate Research Fellowships per fiscal year under this program solicitation pending availability of funds. Each Fellowship consists of three years of support during a five-year fellowship period. Currently, NSF provides a stipend of $34,000 to the Fellow and a cost-of-education allowance of $12,000 to the graduate degree-granting institution for each Fellow who uses the fellowship support in a fellowship year. Graduate students are limited to only one application to the GRFP, submitted either in the first year or in the second year of graduate school.
