Introduction to the GK-12 Program
This program supports fellowships and associated training that will
enable graduate students and advanced undergraduates in the sciences, mathematics,
engineering, and technology to serve as resources in K-12 schools. Academic
institutions apply for awards to support fellowship activities, and are responsible
for selecting fellows. The fellows will serve as resources for teachers in science and
mathematics instruction. Expected outcomes include improved communication and teaching skills
for the fellows, enriched learning by K-12 students, professional development opportunities for K-12 teachers,
and strengthened partnerships between institutions of higher education and local school districts.
