Rhodes College Awarded Nearly $1.2 Million to Prepare Students to Teach Mathematics and Science in High-Need School Districts

Rhodes College is being awarded nearly $1.2 million for a project to support undergraduates interested in becoming K-12 mathematics and science teachers in high-needs school districts and to participate in research opportunities throughout their degree program to expand their skill set as educators.

The grant comes from the Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program of the National Science Foundation. The Urban Teacher Partnership for Culturally Relevant STEM Education is the name of the five-year project at Rhodes.
