Teacher Grants Available from The Somerville Mathematics Fund

The Somerville Mathematics Fund is looking for teachers in Somerville who are interested in applying for a mathematics grant. The Fund will be offering grants up to $500 for K - 12 teachers of Somerville students for exciting projects to improve or enrich mathematics instruction in the classroom or in an after-school program. The teacher applicant should be teaching in a public, parochial, or charter school located in Somerville. The postmark application deadline for these grants is 14 January 2012. The application form is available on-line at the Somerville Mathematics Fund's website 

In the past eleven years, The Somerville Mathematics Fund has awarded one hundred four teacher grants totaling $47,921 for wonderful teacher-designed mathematics projects and activities. Past winners are eligible to apply for another grant. 

The Somerville Mathematics Fund, an affiliate of the national scholarship organization Dollars for Scholars, was chartered in 2000 to celebrate and encourage achievement in mathematics in the city of Somerville, Massachusetts. Next April, they will be awarding college scholarships to outstanding mathematics students from Somerville. For more information, to volunteer or to make a much needed tax-deductible contribution, please contact Erica Voolich (617-666-0666, or mathfund@gmail.com)
