Preparing the Effective Elementary Mathematics Teacher
Goal of the Noyce @ Montclair Mathematics Project
Our scholarship program aims to prepare Effective Elementary Mathematics Teacher (PE2MT). We provide exemplary preparation to students for effective elementary mathematics teaching in New Jersey's high-need K-12 schools. Our scholars obtain an undergraduate degree in mathematics along with a K-6 elementary teaching certification. Each Noyce @ Montclair scholar receive a $13,000 scholarship and a $660 stipend each year for two years with additional money available for local conference travel. In return for the funds, students agree to work two years in a high-needs school in NJ for each year of funding received (if you receive funds for both years you would work 4 years in that school).
Who Is Eligible?
- Undergraduate students enrolled in the program leading to a Mathematics degree with K-6 teacher certification (MAEL)
- Juniors and Seniors admitted to the Teacher Ed. Program must have a 3.0 overall GPA, 2.75 mathematics GPA
