Teach For America Gets $1M Grant for STEM Teacher Recruitment

Lincoln Financial Foundation has awarded Teach for America a one-million-dollar grant over three years to expand efforts to recruit teachers of STEM subjects.  Teach For America is the national corps of recent college graduates who commit to teach for two years in urban and rural public schools and become lifelong leaders in expanding educational opportunity.  "We're grateful to Lincoln Financial for their support of Teach For America corps members and alumni who are working alongside so many others to end the disparities that exist in math and science education," said Wendy Kopp, founder and chief executive officer of Teach For America. "We are seeing an incredible moment of opportunity to enlist more top graduates with STEM degrees to bring their passion and commitment to our nation's urban and rural classrooms. Lincoln's partnership will help Teach For America seize this moment and inspire the next generation of leaders in math and science."
