Teacher and students

In addition to its state funding allocation, CalTeach is supported by government, foundation, private industry and other extramural sources. All CalTeach programs receive support from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and, in some cases, through NSF S-STEM grants and the Noyce Scholars program. 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 corporations including Amgen, Agilent Technologies, Bechtel, Hitachi, JPMorgan 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, Tides Foundation and the UTeach Institute.

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.
