NSF will be awarding scholarships and stipends to NJCU STEM majors who are obtaining teaching certifications in their fields. Funds will be available to undergraduates for their junior and/or senior years, and post-baccalaureate STEM majors may receive one-year stipends to complete their teacher certification requirements.
Participants will be provided with mentoring, supplemental instruction, and professional development.
