Two MAT Biology students receive AFCEA Educational Foundation Scholarships
Two students in the Master of Arts in Teaching in Biology program have been honored with AFCEA Educational Foundation Scholarships. This award is given to teacher candidates who are preparing to teach one of the STEM subjects in a middle or secondary school in the United States.
Stephanie Talmage Forsberg and Rachel Goodale each received a $5000 scholarship from the AFCEA Educational Foundation. In addition, upon graduation they will each receive a $1000 per year AFCEA Science Teaching Tools grant for their first three years of teaching. This grant can be used to purchase STEM-focused classroom supplies or to support science instruction in the schools where they teach.
Congratulations to Stephanie and Rachel for receiving this distinguished honor.
