A grant from the Louisiana Board of Regents provides three Doctoral Fellowships. The students who receive these Fellowships for studies beginning in fall 2008 will have no teaching duties so they can concentrate on their own studies. The stipends will be $30,000 per year and will run for four years, tuition-free.
The Board of Regents Doctoral Fellowships are funded by the Louisiana Educational Quality Support Fund (LEQSF). The Board of Regents manages this fund, which is based on tidelands oil and natural gas royalties paid to the State of Louisiana and constitutionally dedicated by the people of Louisiana to LEQSF. There are many important forms of LEQSF support for Mathematics Department faculty and students for advanced study and research.
