RFP Now Open To Implement UTeach Program at 5 Additional Universities

Is your university interested in producing and retaining more STEM teachers in United States? NMSI has partnered with the UTeach Institute to expand the UTeach secondary STEM preparation program model to five additional universities in the fall of 2015, funded by a generous grant from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.
 
Those who are interested must download and submit a grant application – the National UTeach Request for Proposals – which you can do so here. A letter of intent is requested from interested universities by March 27, 2014 followed by a full proposal on June 17, 2014. Furthermore, to help and expedite this process, the UTeach Institute is hosting a webinar on February 11th, from 1-2 p.m. Central Time. The webinar will walk everyone through the grant application process, in addition to providing an overview of the program. To register for the webinar email: Celeste Padilla, cpadilla@austin.utexas.edu.
 
This highly-effective program has already produced thousands of new STEM teachers, 80% of whom stay in the classroom after five years.  We want to help produce 25,000 STEM teachers by 2025. Join the movement and register for the webinar today!
