It is important to recognize that financial support should not be a major concern when you are considering graduate study towards a Ph.D. in the Washington University in St. Louis Mathematics Department. Generally speaking, if you are admitted to our Ph.D. program, you will be supported. Note that not only is the financial support we give on the high end of what other universities offer, but St. Louis is a fairly inexpensive place to live.
