FREE SCHOLARSHIP OFFERED TO VETERANS INTERESTED IN TUITION FREE MASTER OF SCIENCE DEGREE IN MATHEMATICS EDUCATION AT MERCY COLLEGE
Attention: U.S. Military Veterans
Free Master of Science Degree !!
$1.16 Million Award!!
A Once in a Lifetime Opportunity for Qualified Veterans to Become Secondary Mathematics Teachers
Associate Professor Dr. William Farber,
Mercy College School of Education
U.S. Navy Veteran (1968-1974)
As a Veteran of the United States Navy who transitioned to teaching mathematics, I believe in the reciprocal strengths that Veterans bring to the profession and that teaching brings to Veterans’ lives,” says William Farber, Associate Professor of Mathematics Education at Mercy College in Dobbs Ferry, NY. “I am convinced that these mature men and women will provide qualities of leadership, strength and team work to the profession, improve capacity- building in their schools, and act as professional and personal role models for secondary school students.”
A DREAM COME TRUE
Mercy College has been awarded a major grant of just over 1.16 million dollars from the National Science Foundation (NSF) Teacher Scholarship Program. The grant is for a project to advance mathematics education, with a particular emphasis on United States Military Veterans retraining for new careers as secondary mathematics teachers.
The funding from the National Science Foundation is earmarked for ten Veterans to complete a Master of Science degree in Mathematics Education – TUITION FREE!!
The challenge attached to this good news is that Dr. Farber needs to find UP TO 10 potential student veterans by the end of this May, 2020!
“ Contact me immediately, ” says Dr. Farber, “if you are a Veteran who already has an earned bachelor’s degree and have earned at least 21-24 credits in mathematics, a Master of Science in math education can qualify you for a career as a secondary math teacher and lead to State Certification.
We strongly believe this program will provide veterans with a new gateway to a purposeful life in a deserving community. As important, we strongly believe that these mature men and women will provide qualities of leadership, strength and team work to the profession, improve capacity- building in their schools, and act as professional and personal role models for secondary school students. We also believe that this program will bring benefits to high need schools in terms of providing a new pool of STEM teachers.
