MAT: Mathematics Grant Funding
The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Minot State University has obtained a grant* to fund professional development opportunites/graduate coursework for K-12 math teachers. With this grant, mathematics instruction in the state of North Dakota can be improved by improving the preparation of mathematics teachers and increasing student achievement.
The grant-funded program* consists of two-week and five-week graduate courses offered through Minot State University (MiSU) and Mayville State University (MaSU). Two courses will be offered online each spring and fall, and more courses will be offered during summers. These courses are graded graduate courses can be applied to graduate degree programs in teaching. The courses geared are for K-12 mathematics teachers. Enrollment is limited to 15 teachers per course.
For North Dakota teachers, the grant pays tuition and fee scholarships, books, room (if staying on-campus), travel, and associated follow-up activities. The only cost for teachers is a one-time $35 registration fee.
In order to take any of these graduate courses (other than Math 500 workshops), students apply as either a non-degree-seeking or degree-seeking student.Graduate School application forms are available at the Graduate School Website, and registration instructions are here.
