Funding

Teacher and students

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

All CalTeach programs have received support from the National Science Foundation, through the Noyce Scholars program and in some cases through NSF S-STEM grants, to provide scholarships, fellowships, stipends and programmatic support intended for the recruitment and preparation of STEM majors and professionals to become K-12 teachers.

CalTeach has also been supported financially by private corporations such as Amgen, Agilent, Bechtel, Hitachi,JP Morgan Chase and through partnerships with Mathfor America, 100Kin10, the National Math Education Advancement Foundation, the Knowles Science Teaching Foundation, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and the National Math and Science Initiative.

Finally, every UC campus that houses a CalTeach program provides significant monetary and in-kind resources through faculty and administrator time, classroom space, student scholarships and other kinds of support.
