Amid the increasing distress about low achievement in sciences on the part of American middle and high school students, there is an awareness that science instruction needs to be exciting and relevant to the lives of today’s students. In a unique partnership, the Graduate School of Education at Fordham University (GSE) and the Wildlife Conservation Society at the Bronx Zoo (WCS) have designed a New York State-approved Master of Science in Teaching program which taps the resources of the WCS, one of the world’s largest providers of teacher training focusing on wildlife conservation and environmental science, and GSE’s deep store of teaching expertise. We are excited about the program, and about a new scholarship opportunity for science majors- read on for details!

Now, due to a Robert Noyce Scholarship Grant of almost $1 million dollars from the National Science Foundation, GSE and the WCS are extremely pleased to be able to provide scholarships to train talented undergraduates and professionals to become high school science teachers through enrollment in the MST program. To be eligible, students must be majoring in, or hold a degree in, science, and be committed to teaching science in high need school districts upon the completion of the degree.
