The GAANN Fellowship
The Graduate Assistance in Areas of National Need (GAANN) is a program of the U.S. Department of Education to increase the number of Ph.D.’s in areas of national need such as Mathematics. It provides fellowships to assist graduate students with excellent records who demonstrate financial need and plan to pursue a Ph.D. in Mathematics. With support from GAANN our department seeks to expand its outreach to under-represented groups. Particular emphasis is on recruitment and retention of female and African-American students.
The department was the recipient of the grant four times, starting in 2001. The principal investigator of the grant is Dr. Gerard Buskes. For more information, please contact:
