National Stem Cell Foundation Scholars Program

Seeking middle school science teachers who:

  • enjoy the creativity in teaching

  • are eager to share ideas with colleagues

  • are excited about networking with peers from across the country

  • would like financial and academic support for great ideas

The National STEM Cell Foundation (NSCF) Scholars Program works to inspire the creativity and passion of middle school science teachers, ten of whom will be selected for this prestigious program. Scholars will be hosted by The Gatton Academy of Mathematics and Science and The Center for Gifted Studies from June 4 - 10, 2017 at Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

Scholars will engage in hands-on, minds-on science activities; connect with speakers and thought leaders in STEM education; learn with skilled science educators; and develop a creative Challenge Project for classroom implementation. Each Scholar will receive a Chromebook and funding for Challenge Project supplies and materials.

NSCF Scholars will share midpoint progress with their colleagues while attending the NSTA annual meeting in March 2018 in Atlanta. Mentoring will be provided throughout the year by Western Kentucky University faculty.

All expenses, including travel costs, materials, mentoring and Challenge Project supplies will be covered by a grant from the National Stem Cell Foundation.

If you have questions, please call 270-745-6323 or email
