Applications are closed for this program at this time

   The Science Teaching Scholars Program (STSP) is a partnership between Loyola’s Center for Science & Math Education (CSME) and Chicago Public Schools (CPS) to provide twenty-four teachers with an extraordinary opportunity for career advancement in science education.

With funding provided by Loyola University, the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) and CPS, teachers will take 9 courses in science and science education over a 3 year period. These graduate level courses will count toward our developing Masters of Education degree in Science Education. The program includes six science courses and three science education courses. All courses will be offered in the summer and late spring, along with enhancement activities throughout the academic year.

Participants successfully completing the program will not only earn an endorsement in middle school science education but will also be at or near completion of our developing M.Ed. in Science Education. Because of generous funding by Loyola, ISBE and CPS, this program will be FREE OF CHARGE for the 24 selected applicants.
