National Science Foundation (NSF) Awards $124,000 Capacity-Building Grant to Webster University
Webster University was awarded the $124,000 National Science Foundation Noyce Capacity-Building grant, which will be used to encourage talented science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) majors to become teachers in high-need Missouri K-12 schools.
A new program, Webster’s Educating STEM Teachers Bound for Success (WESTbound Success), has been created thanks to the grant, and will start April 1. The College of Arts & Sciences and the School of Education will jointly administer the program and will collaborate with the Walker School’s Department of Math & Computer Science.
