Fellowship Grants for New Math and Science Teachers
The Knowles Science Teaching Foundation offers Teaching Fellowships in the areas of biological sciences, mathematics, technology, and physical sciences. The fellowships are designed to lead new high school math and science teachers through the first and second years of their career and provide financial and professional resources for successful STEM teaching. The fellowships include mentoring and coaching, professional development opportunities, access to a national support network, and an active online community. Teaching fellows also receive financial support in the form of grants or stipends throughout the year. Professional development grants are available to cover the cost of relevant activities, including workshops, mentoring, practitioner inquiry, and fellow observations. In addition, fellows are eligible for teaching materialsgrants, and they can apply for leadership grants to pursue efforts that will have a positive impact on math and science education beyond their classroom. Interested applicants will find this grant opportunity on GetEdFunding, a free database sponsored by CDW•G of thousands of funding opportunities for educators.
