New Fellowship Program for Math and Science Teachers Grades 1-12
Are you passionate about becoming a grades 1-12 math or science teacher?
The innovative Urban Mathematics and Science Teacher Collaborative (grades 1-12)
at Tufts University, which offers full financial support and ongoing
professional development and mentoring, might just be for you.
Tufts University's Department of Education is proud to announce that it is a
recipient of a generous Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program grant through
the National Science Foundation. The grant supports future math and science
teachers interested in pursuing their Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) degree at
Tufts as part of the Urban Mathematics and Science Teacher Collaborative
The program will fund nine teaching fellows who
have undergraduate degrees in the STEM (science,
technology, engineering, and mathematics)
disciplines and who demonstrate a commitment to
teaching young people in high-needs school districts
for at least four years after graduation. Fellows in
the program will spend 12 months (2015-2016) as
students in Tufts' intensive MAT teacher preparation
program, working with Tufts faculty to focus on
improving mathematics and science teaching and
learning in grades 1–12, and will student teach in
Malden - an incredibly diverse and interesting city
close to the Tufts campus and just north of Boston -
either at Malden High School or at the Linden K-8
STEAM Academy. After graduating, fellows will spend
the next four years involved in ongoing mentoring
provided by the program.
While in the MAT program, fellows will receive full tuition scholarships as well
as a stipend to cover living expenses. After their graduation, they will also
receive $14,000 annually, in addition to their teaching salaries, for four
