  • The annual Grad School Fair at the January Joint Mathematics Meetings gives meeting participants the opportunity to speak with representatives from 40 - 50 U.S. graduate programs.
  • List of Mathematical Sciences Graduate Programs in the U.S. is taken from survey groupings.
  • Discussions of graduate student life - by and for graduate students - can be found on the AMS Grad Student Blog.
  • National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowships support individuals in the early years of a Ph.D. program.
  • The National Physical Science Consortium offers graduate fellowships in the physical sciences, with special emphasis toward the recruitment of underrepresented minority and female physical science and engineering students.
  • PhDs.org Science, Math and Engineering Career Resources contains advice and data about graduate programs in mathematics.
  • Postbaccalaureate Program, Smith College is for women with bachelor's degrees who did not major in mathematics or whose mathematics major was light.
  • Under the Micropcope where women and science connect, from the Feminist Press, offers some guidance to young women in scientific careers
