Trust Fund Graduate Scholarships: Support for Your Education

The NCCTM Trust Fund Committee  accepts applications from current NCCTM members who are pre-K-12 teachers and who are taking graduate courses in mathematics or mathematics education as part of a graduate program leading to a graduate degree or graduate add-on mathematics licensure.

The Trust Fund Committee awards scholarships of $1000 to as many qualified applicants as the available investment income from the Trust Fund will permit. Scholarship applications may be submitted during the year, but will be reviewed twice a year.

The application deadlines are:

  • March 1 for courses completed in the previous Fall term.
  • October 1 for courses completed in the previous Spring or Summer term
