The ultimate goal of NARST is to help all learners achieve science literacy.
NARST Scholarship for Classroom Teachers and Informal Science Educators
Each year the Publications Advisory Committee oversees the NARST Scholarship for Classroom Teachers and Informal Science Educators. There are nine scholarships of $700 each available to support travel to the 2016 NARST conference for presenters who are full-time science teachers or informal educators presenting at the conference. Applications should be made by NARST members in support of the teacher or informal educators with whom they are working. Click here for details on the application process.
Call for Application for Jhumki Basu Scholars Program
The NARST Equity and Ethics (E&E) Committee offers a Scholars Program for members from underrepresented groups within the United States. The program is designed to support and to nurture promising young scholars from underrepresented groups. It is more than a financial stipend — it is intended to intellectually support the development of these emergent scholars' programs of research. To help scholars craft questions, strengthen their theoretical frameworks, and improve their research skills, Scholars are required to participate in the NARST Pre-Conference Workshop. Scholars are also invited to participate in other NARST events and to contribute to science education research, scholarship, and leadership more broadly. Click here for details.
