NCTM Accepting Applications for Middle School Course Work Scholarships

The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics is accepting applications from prospective middle school mathematics teachers for its Teacher Coursework scholarships.

The purpose of the scholarship is to provide financial support to college or university students who are preparing to teach middle school mathematics. For the 2017-18 school year, one scholarship with a maximum value of $3,000 will be awarded to a person currently completing their junior year of college or university, scheduling for full-time study at a four- or five-year college or university in the next academic year, and pursuing a career goal of becoming a certified teacher of middle school mathematics.

Scholarship funds can be applied to tuition, fees, course materials, and other expenses directly related to the recipient's academic program of study. Any acquisition of equipment must support the applicant’' plan of study but not require more than 10 percent, or $300, of the total scholarship amount.

Coursework and graduation must be completed between April 1, 2017, and August 31, 2018.

See the NCTM website for complete program guidelines, information about past recipients, and application instructions.
