Full scholarships available for teacher training

alphabet-class-conceptual-301926Up to 26 full scholarships to the University of Rochester are available to train math and science teachers, both to teach in high-need schools and to incorporate digital devices, such as tablets, into their lessons.

The scholarships for obtaining a master’s degree and teaching certification from the Warner School of Education are made available by a $1.2 million grant from the National Science Foundation’s Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program. For students hoping to begin their studies in May 2018, the deadline is April 12.

Scholarships are available for five years.

This is the third time the Warner School has earned a grant from the Noyce scholarship. Previous grants have supported the training of 57 teachers since 2008, according to the Warner School.

“As more districts across New York State are moving toward incorporating electronic devices in all classrooms, the new award recognizes the need for more math and science teachers who can thoughtfully utilize the plethora of digital programs into the classroom to promote student learning and achievement,” said Jeffrey Choppin, chair of teaching and curriculum at the Warner School.

The training program partners with the East Irondequoit School District and the Rochester City School District’s East High School.
