Graduate Teaching Assistantships
The Mathematics Department annually awards six on campus GTA positions. These GTAs work as facilitators and tutors in the Mathematics Laboratory. These positions pay about $12,000 for the academic year, plus waiver of tuition.
Current Status: ONE POSITION AVAILABLE STARTING JANUARY 2021.
Graduate Research Assistantships
The Mathematics Department occasionally has RA positions available for graduate students. Duties involve assisting faculty with grant-supported research in mathematical cell biology, complex systems and other areas. These positions pay the same as GTA positions: NONE AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME
From time to time GTA positions for mathematics graduate students are available from other sources. When that occurs they will be listed here: NONE AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME
Expressions of interest are welcome from highly qualified actual and potential graduate students at any time by filling out this application. Please follow the instructions on the application. For further information contact the UNO Math Department.
Through a donation from Horace Wu and Kate King, a $1500 scholarship is awarded annually, designed to support outstanding students who are pursuing Graduate degrees in Mathematics and Science. The individual must be a K-12 teacher, pursuing a Graduate degree, and should have at least a 3.25 GPA.

Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) grants provide $4000 a year/up to $16,000 for undergraduates, or $8000 for master's students in scholarship aid. Students must have a GPA of 3.25 or score in the top 25% on the college/graduate admissions test. Once a degree or teaching certificate is earned, TEACH grant recipients must spend at least 4 of the next 8 years teaching in a 'high-need' field (math is one) with at least 30% poor students.
The Teacher of Mathematics Scholarship is awarded to teachers of high school mathematics who are interested in taking coursework towards a graduate degree in mathematics (MS, MA, or MAT) OR a Secondary Mathematics Specialist Certificate from UNO.
