The National Science Foundation has awarded a $1.1 million grant to Northern New Mexico College in Española to support scholarships that will increase the number of students seeking to be science, technology, engineering and mathematics teachers for north-central New Mexico schools.
The award is effective Oct. 1 and expires Sept. 30, 2015.
The project, entitled “NNMC Phase 1-Noyce Scholarship Project,” is under the direction of Drs. David J. Torres, Catherine Berryhill, Fangyang Shen and Ivan Lopez-Hurtado at NNMC.
Through a partnership involving Northern New Mexico College’s departments of Engineering and Math and Science with collaborating local school districts, the program aims to increase the number of qualified mathematics and science teachers in schools for Northern and central New Mexico.
The program targets STEM majors who decide to teach late in the course of their undergraduate STEM degrees and seek an alternative certification as teachers through Northern’s College of Education.
