SOUTH BEND, Ind. - Early-career middle school teachers of STEM disciplines are invited to apply for a new, fully funded professional development program offered through the Notre Dame Center for STEM Education. The Trustey Family STEM Teaching Fellows program is recruiting highly motivated applicants for the initiative, with a March 31 deadline.

Those selected will build their instructional, assessment, and leadership abilities while living in residence at the University of Notre Dame for three consecutive summer institutes - two weeks every summer. They must continue to teach - and to learn from master teachers and national experts--at their schools during two academic years. A $6,000 stipend plus travel reimbursements extend through the duration of the fellowship.

The Notre Dame Center for STEM Education, part of the Institute for Educational Initiatives, wants to receive applicants as school-based groups of 3-5 educators, with early-career teachers forming the majority of each team. Get more details about this unique fellowship, which will begin with institutes in summer 2015. Apply here: http://nd.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_00zGWqc79p5xf0x
