The goal is to financially assist students currently enrolled in a teacher education program with a mathematics specialty. The award is to be used for tuition, books, labs, and fees necessary to fulfill requirements for a BA or BS degree with teacher certification in mathematics.
Each applicant must be currently enrolled at a Southeastern Michigan college or university in an elementary or secondary teacher education program with a mathematics specialty. An applicant must be a college/university junior or senior in good academic standing by December 15, 2011, with an overall GPA of 3.00 or higher. In addition, secondary education majors must have successfully completed the college’s or university's required calculus sequence, while elementary education majors must have at least a mathematics minor. The classification (junior or senior) for an applicant who has earned a degree in another area and has enrolled in a teacher education program will be determined by his/her December 15, 2011 status in the teacher education program.
A check for $1,000 will be paid to the scholarship recipient(s). The term of each scholarship is for one year and shall not be renewable.
