Purpose

The goal is to financially assist students currently enrolled in a teacher education program with a mathematics education major or minor if at the elementary level. Secondary education students must be pursuing a mathematics major. 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.

Eligibility

Each applicant must be a Michigan resident and currently enrolled at a Michigan college or university in an elementary or secondary teacher education program with a mathematics specialty. Applicants must be a college/university junior or senior in good academic standing by June 1, 2014, with an overall GPA of 3.00 or higher. In addition, secondary education students must have successfully completed the college's/university's required calculus sequence, while elementary education students must have at least a mathematics minor. In determining eligibility, applicants enrolled in the final year of a five-year teacher preparation program will be considered a senior. 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 June 1 status in the teacher education program. The applicant must also be a member of the Michigan Council of Teachers of Mathematics.

Award

A check for $2,500 will be paid to the scholarship recipient(s) with their school as the second payee. The term of each scholarship is for one year and shall not be renewable.
