How You Can Help
Support Tomorrow’s Teachers Today
Many of UT Dallas' brightest science and math majors are foregoing more lucrative careers because they are committed to educating the next generation of scientists and engineers. Their passion for teaching should be rewarded, not penalized with crushing student loan debt.
Your gift, in combination with others, provides scholarships and internships to help future math and science teachers focus their time and energy on preparing to take their place in north Texas classrooms. It also supports personal induction support for new UTeach-trained teachers in the DFW area for the first three years of their careers. And a matching grant from the National Math and Science Initiative DOUBLES the impact of your gift.
Every gift, large and small, makes a big difference for an aspiring teacher. Donations are pooled in an endowment to provide the following student support:
- Introductory teaching classes, including field experience in local classrooms: $250
- Paid internships within education organizations: $2,000
- Annual scholarship support: $5,000/semester
UTeach Dallas Endowment Update
Currently, UTeach Dallas has set a goal of building a $2 million dollar endowment for the continued support of the program, which includes a $1 million matching grant from the National Math and Science Initiative.
(*NOTE: Donations double on the condition that we are able to receive the NMSI matching offer by raising the required $1 million. This matching grant offer expires in Summer, 2012, so it is critical that we raise the necessary funds quickly in order to ensure continued success of this far-reaching and impactful program.)
