California Teach S-STEM Application for 2017-18
Application deadline for the 2017-18 Scholarship is May 17, 2017.

This scholarship program is funded by the National Science Foundation, and is designed for UCLA Science, Engineering and Mathematics undergraduate majors who are pursuing careers either 1) in secondary school teaching, or 2) who plan to teach in community college, a four-year college, or university, as part of an academic career.

The scholarship provides up to $10,000 for the 2017-18 academic year, and is open to students in their junior or senior year. Note that “junior” year means that you are in your second-to-last year before graduating, so you have two years left before graduating. “Senior” year means your final year as an undergraduate at UCLA.

Scholarship recipients must be US Citizens, US Permanent Residents, or other US Nationals and be eligible for financial aid as determined by the UCLA Financial Aid Office. This scholarship has a need-based component; it requires that you have submitted a FAFSA for the 2017-18 academic year, and have been determined to be eligible for financial aid. (This is a federal requirement). In addition, scholars must have a minimum of a 3.0 UCLA GPA as of the end of Winter 2017, and be on track to graduate within one or two years.

A graduate student mentor will be assigned to each S-STEM scholar to help him or her understand the process of science research or math graduate-level work, and to provide career and academic advice.

Scholarships will be awarded for one year only (2017-18).

A full application will include an online application, two letters of recommendation, and an unofficial transcript from UCLA.

One recommendation letter should be from an instructor or teacher from California Teach courses or other teaching-related experience that documents the applicant's potential as a teacher. The other letter should be from a science or mathematics instructor (either UCLA or Community College) documenting the applicant's potential as a STEM professional.
