NSF Grant to Provide Scholarships for Diverse STEM Teacher Candidates

Mark Wolfmeyer, Department of Secondary Education, was awarded a five-year, $1.2 million grant from the National Science Foundation. The grant will support the recruitment of STEM professionals to careers in secondary STEM teaching, drawing from a wider diversity of demographic, disciplinary and professional experience and to prepare them for the challenging task of STEM education in under-resourced urban communities. The project, Mentoring Urban STEM Teachers for Equity and Innovation, aims to serve the national need to increase the diversity of students entering STEM professions by supporting and training a broader diversity of secondary STEM teachers to teach those students. KU professors involved in the grant include Wolfmeyer (Primary Investigator), Yun Lu (Co-PI), Ju Zhou (Co-PI), Amber Pabon (Co-PI) and Richard Heineman (Co-PI).
