Money and Financial Aid for Math Teachers

"Math is hard" as that great fount of wisdom, Barbie once said.  However, some organizations are trying to make it easier to at least teach math with aid for math teachers.

The Honeywell Corporate Giving Program has various programs for math teachers, including scholarships for middle school math and science teachers to attend an intensive training program on space science at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama. 

The National Council for Mathematics Teachers has several scholarship programs for those teaching math anywhere from the pre-K through 5 level, middle school teaching, and high school

If you are studying to be a math teacher, and are willing to work in a low-income area for four years, you may consider a TEACH (Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education) grant from the federal government. Mathematics is one of the "high needs" fields, which include reading, science, special education, languages, and more.

And, for STEM teachers in the areas covered by First Energy Corp(here's a map of their coverage in Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and western Maryland), there are small grants for STEM classroom projects for grades K-12.  See more details on First Energy Corp classroom grants here.
