Funding

Teacher and students

In addition to its state funding allocation, CalTeach programs on every campus are supported by government, foundation, private industry and other extramural sources.

All CalTeach programs receive support from the National Science Foundation (NSF), through the Noyce Scholars program, and in some cases through NSF S-STEM grants. This funding provides scholarships, fellowships, stipends and programmatic support for the recruitment and preparation of STEM majors and professionals to become K–12 teachers.

CalTeach also receives funds from private corporations including Amgen, Agilent Technologies, Bechtel, Hitachi, JP Morgan Chase and Verizon, and through partnerships with 100Kin10, the Hearst Foundations, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the Knowles Science Teaching Foundation, Math for America, the National Math Education Advancement Foundation, National Math and Science Initiative, The Allergan Foundation and the UTeach Institute. The program is also supported by private donations and grants from community and family foundations.

Finally, every UC campus that is home to the CalTeach program provides significant monetary resources from its own academic departments, as well as in-kind contributions in the form of dedicated faculty and administrator time, classroom space, student scholarships and other kinds of support.
