The Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program at the American Museum of Natural History is a full-time, 15-month fellowship Master’s program that takes place at the museum and in urban partner schools. We seek a student body with diverse life and career experience who want to change lives by becoming middle- and high-school Earth science teachers. All degree candidates will receive free tuition and books and a $30,000 living stipend. In return, candidates commit to teaching in a high-need New York State school for four years.
Information on eligibility requirements, application deadlines, courses, and more can be found on our website: amnh.org/mat
It’s a fantastic program – our first graduating class is teaching Earth science in schools across New York City and beyond. We’re looking for a diverse student body that can inspire kids from all walks of life. Can you reach out to your constituents and make them aware of our program? Or is there a listserv or newsletter where this might be a better fit?
