GSU Receives $900K Grant to Recruit, Train Science Teachers

The program offers scholarships to undergraduate majors studying content in the fields of science, technology engineering and mathematics, or STEM fields. Students will study in the Master of Arts in Teaching program in the College of Education’s Department of Middle-Secondary Education and Instructional Technology.

I-MAST is a collaboration between the College of Education and GSU’s College of Arts and Sciences, as well as Georgia Tech and four public school districts in the metro Atlanta area.

The first scholarship recipients are expected to enroll at GSU in fall 2010. Applicants will have achieved at least junior-level status in their undergraduate study either at GSU’s College of Arts and Sciences or Georgia Tech, or have a minimum bachelor’s degree in a STEM area.

Undergraduate students who commit to pursue a secondary science teacher certification at GSU will receive a two-year scholarship totaling $24,000 to be used in their senior year of undergraduate studies and in their year of teacher certification studies.

STEM graduates will receive a one-year scholarship of $12,000 to complete their teacher certification studies. Scholarship recipients will be obligated to teach two years in a metro Atlanta high-need school district for every year of funding received.
