May 2017 : K-State Math Teacher Scholarship Program
A new scholarship program is starting in Fall 2017 aimed at increasing K-State’s production of middle and high school math teachers for high need school districts. This is a joint effort between the Department of Curriculum and Instruction and the Department of Mathematics, and funding is provided by a grant from the National Science Foundation’s Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program. For each of the next five years, six undergraduates in their final two years of study will receive a 18,000 USD scholarship, and one graduate student completing a Graduate Certificate in Teaching and Learning will receive a 20,000 USD scholarship. For each year of scholarship money received, a student will be required to teach two years in a high need school. In addition, three freshmen/sophomore math majors that are considering a career in teaching will receive a stipend of up to 3,200 USD to work in a teaching-related internship. Applications and additional information are available at http://coe.k-state.edu/kmtsp/. Students can contact Sherri Martinie (martinie@k-state.edu) or Craig Spencer (cvs@ksu.edu) with any questions.
