Founded in 1920, the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) is the world's largest mathematics education organization and works to advocate for high-quality mathematics teaching and learning for each and every student.
To advance this mission, the council is inviting applications for its Emerging Teacher-Leaders in Elementary School Mathematics grant program. Through the program, a single grant of up to $6,000 will be awarded to increase the mathematics content knowledge of an elementary school teacher (pre-K-5) who has a demonstrated commitment to mathematics teaching and learning.
To be eligible, the primary applicant must be a classroom (elementary school) teacher with at least three years of experience and have mathematics as a regular teaching responsibility or be a full-time mathematics coach. Note: The definition of a classroom teacher is an individual who spends half or more of his/her work time teaching in the classroom; the individual could be a math teacher who meets the classroom requirement.
See the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
