The objectives are: 1.
To use GAANN fellowships to increase the number of students of superior
ability, who are US citizens or others meting the requirements, who
earn a Ph.D. in mathematics at UNL; 2.
To use GAANN fellowships to recruit and retain students in the UNL
mathematics Ph.D. program from traditionally underrepresented
backgrounds; 3. To use GAANN fellowships to enhance the research preparation of mathematics graduate students at UNL; 4. To use GAANN fellowships to shorten the average time to the degree for mathematics graduate students at UNL; and 5.
To use UNL resources to ensure that GAANN fellows as well as other
mathematics Ph.D. students are well prepared to be outstanding teachers
of mathematics. The
successful realization of these objectives will lead to more U.S.
citizens, nationals, and permanent residents earning Ph.D.s in
mathematics. The U.S. citizens will include a higher percentage of
women and minorities, and will be welltrained for careers in research
and teaching.
