Support NevadaTeach

The Colleges of Education, Science, and Agriculture, Biotechnology and Natural Resources at the University of Nevada, Reno have partnered to develop a plan to effectively administer NevadaTeach as a program that will impact the community and region long-term. In addition to producing secondary STEM teachers, NevadaTeach will strengthen relationships among educational institutions within the state, tackle public scrutiny of K-12 education, and innovate methods of addressing differentiated instruction in science and math curricula.

With your help, we can look forward to long-term sustainability of the NevadaTeach program. Giving to the program would open doors to countless opportunities for future generations of Nevada students interested in STEM careers.

Several ways that your donation would benefit NevadaTeach include:

  • Recruitment efforts aimed at inviting freshmen to learn about the program and get involved
  • Tuition rebates for students taking Step 1 and Step 2 introductory courses
  • Merit and need-based student scholarships
  • Paid internships for students in the program to understand, explore, and analyze today's K-12 science and math education for tomorrow's students
  • Endowment for a master teacher
  • Stipends for mentor teachers to help train students
  • Stipends for cooperating national teachers who will guide students in apprentice teaching
  • Discretionary funds for equipment/technology, professional conference expenditures, lending library supplies, and emergency financial aid in unique circumstances

Consider helping NevadaTeach build a bridge for college STEM students to step into the education field and affect the lives of thousands of young learners. Consider how your K-12 teachers impacted your career decisions, and how many more avenues would be opened up through NevadaTeach's training and mentoring of quality secondary STEM teachers for tomorrow's leaders.

The 21st century is brimming with career opportunities for students interested in STEM fields, and your donation to NevadaTeach will be instrumental in helping them reach their goals and establish their own impact in the world.
