STEM teacher recruitment project gains additional funding

August 28, 2017

CATALYST faculty, Lynn Bryan, Selcen Guzey, Muhsin Meneske, and Jill Newton, received a $195,000 award to continue a state level STEM teacher recruitment project called the 21st Century STEM Teachers Scholarship Program.  Funded by the Indiana Commission for Higher Education, the 21st Century STEM Teachers Scholarship Program provides $10,000 scholarships in the form of forgivable loans for Purdue’s elementary and secondary preservice teachers who commit to; (1) completing not only a rigorous plan of study in elementary education or in an area of secondary STEM education that leads to state licensure, but also an Integrated STEM Education Degree Concentration in which they develop enhanced knowledge and skills for STEM integration in K-12 instruction and (2) K-12 teaching in a high-need Indiana school for one year for every year of scholarship received.
