Graduate Degree Information
Website Update - Applications Open Sp24 & F24
The WSU Department of Mathematics & Statistics is now accepting applications for Spring 2024, with preference for PhD Statistical Science applicants. Other applicants for the PhD Mathematics program or MS programs may be considered for admission, but there is a smaller likelihood of funding being available for these degree options.
The deadline for Spring 2024 consideration is September 10th. We encourage you to apply now at https://gradschool.wsu.edu/apply/.
Applicants to all degree options starting Fall 2024 will be considered for assistantship positions, which come with a tuition waiver and stipend. The application will open in September, and the deadline to apply for Fall 2024 is January 10th, 2024. There is no separate application for assistantship positions.
The GRE is not required. There are no application fee waivers available.

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.
