An all-expenses-paid professional development opportunity for 10 select teachers

Seeking middle school science teachers who:

  • enjoy the creativity in teaching

  • are eager to share ideas with colleagues

  • are excited about networking with peers from across the U.S.

  • would like financial and academic support for great ideas

Through a grant from the National Stem Cell Foundation, The Center for Gifted Studies at Western Kentucky University is pleased to offer the NSCF Scholars Program for the second year. Ten middle school science teachers will spend June 4 - 10, 2017, at Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green, Kentucky, where they will engage in hands-on and minds-on science activities, connect with speakers and thought leaders in STEM education, learn with skilled science educators, and develop a creative Challenge Project for classroom implementation. Each scholar will receive a Chromebook and funding for Challenge Project supplies and materials.

NSCF Scholars will share midpoint progress with their colleagues while attending the National Science Teachers Association annual meeting in March 2018 in Atlanta. Mentoring will be provided throughout the year by Western Kentucky University faculty.

All expenses, including travel costs, materials, mentoring and Challenge Project supplies will be covered by a grant from the National Stem Cell Foundation.

Application Deadline Extended to January 31
