NCTM Accepting Applications for Equity in Mathematics Grants


The purpose of the grant is to incorporate middle school classroom materials or lessons that will improve the achievement of student groups with a record of underachievement. Grants of up to $8,000 will be awarded for projects that address the mathematics content as defined in the Principles and Standards for School Mathematics of NCTM; the plan for improving achievement of the targeted students; and the anticipated impact on students’ achievement.

To be eligible, applicants must be a current (on or before October 15, 2014) full individual or e-member of NCTM, or teach at a school with a current (on or before October 15, 2014) NCTM pre-K-8 school membership and currently teach mathematics in grades 6-8 at least 50 percent of the school day. Activities are to be completed between June 1, 2015, and May 31, 2016. Past recipients of the grant are ineligible to reapply.

Visit the NCTM website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
