GSE Research Team Receives $1 Million NSF Grant

Researchers at the Graduate School of Education (GSE) have been awarded a coveted National Science Foundation (NSF) grant for their evolving work on a new graduate scholarship program.

Usha Kotelawala, Ph.D., assistant professor of mathematics education at GSE, and her team received a five-year grant totaling more than $1 million for their project, “Fordham University NSF Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program.” The team includes: Robert Graham, Ed.D., clinical associate professor of education; Melkana Brakalova-Trevithick, Ph.D., associate professor of mathematics; and Janusz Golec, Ph.D., associate professor of mathematics.

The program will prepare 18 graduate students pursuing a master’s degree to teach middle and high school mathematics in high-need New York City public schools. Three cohorts of six Noyce scholars will be trained through Lesson Study, a collaborative approach to teaching lesson planning.
