National Science Foundation Grant Awarded For Training Math Teachers Locally

by | Jun 10, 2024 | News | 0 comments

A National Science Foundation grant is focusing on training math teachers in rural areas of Utah that serve indigenous groups. A USU press release issued this month shares that the six-year grant, which is under the Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program, is for $3 million dollars and will aim at serving school districts in Duchesne, Uintah, and San Juan counties, as well as teachers serving the Navajo Nation and the Uintah and Ouray Reservation. USU Statewide instructors from both the USU Uintah Basin and USU Blanding regions will lead the instruction. Participants will receive a $14,000-per-year stipend and can also receive tuition assistance to cover a master’s degree in mathematics through Utah State University. According to the grant proposal, these regions were selected “because they contain substantial proportions of rural and Native students, which are two groups that are often overlooked in STEM education. USU is uniquely positioned to engage with these school districts due to its extensive network of regional campuses and ongoing work in these communities.” For the entire press release, visit
