Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Teacher Preparation (STEMTP) Program

Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Teacher Preparation (STEMTP)

This program is no longer accepting proposals. The last proposal deadline was October 9, 2002. The STEMTP program has been succeeded by the Teacher Professional Continuum (TPC) program.

Overview

This program responds to the critical need for qualified teachers of mathematics and science in elementary and secondary schools. The program supports efforts to develop exemplary science and mathematics preK-12 teacher education models that produce and retain effective teachers who have the skills, confidence, and commitment to enable all students to attain high standards of achievement in mathematics, science, engineering, and technology. Partnerships involving institutions of higher education and K-12 school districts are addressing local needs in terms of teacher shortages by developing and implementing effective strategies for recruiting prospective teachers with strong backgrounds in science and mathematics into teacher certification programs and retaining them in the teacher workforce. Projects are addressing such areas of local need as workforce diversity, urban or rural teacher shortages, and shortages within specific disciplines or grade levels. The STEMTP program complements the Math and Science Partnership (MSP) program.
