SOS: Support Current and Future STaRs!

The STaR program supports early career mathematics educators. The program was initiated with funds from the NSF and during the last six years has supported six cohorts, which together include 210 Fellows employed at 144 different institutions throughout the U.S. (see map).

STaR Fellows spend a week in Park City, UT where they are mentored by experienced mathematics educators—focusing on service, teaching, research, and networking with colleagues. The STaR Program is highlighted in the October 2015 issue of the AMS Notices.

AMTE is now the official home for the STaR program (the NSF funding has ended). Program continuation is totally dependent on contributions from individuals, professional associations, and foundations. Please consider making a regular contribution so this program can continue to support early career mathematics educators who are destined to be future leaders in the field. Contributions can be earmarked for a graduate or faculty member from a specific state or region or institution.

Help support this important program; information can be found on the AMTE website.
