The University is committed to providing support for graduate degree candidates who intend to become teachers in math and/or science. Graduate students who hold a teaching certificate in any subject area may take course work toward an additional certification in math and/or science and qualify for a scholarship. Those who do not hold a teaching certificate, but who are interested in pursuing certification in math and/or science, are also eligible. However, in addition to the subject area courses, the student must also complete the Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program.
Scholarships are available during the fall, spring, and summer terms. All applicants for admission are automatically evaluated for scholarship eligibility; students do not need to complete a separate scholarship application. Scholarships are renewable for the duration of your enrollment, provided you maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.00. Scholarships may not be combined with Monmouth University tuition remission benefits, the senior citizen tuition discount, the Graduate Scholarship, and/or the Second Master’s Scholarship. However, the scholarship may be combined with a Graduate Assistantship and employer tuition reimbursement as long as the total funding does not exceed tuition and fees (fees do not include books). Scholarships are available during the fall, spring, and summer terms.
The Math/Science Educator Scholarship has been discontinued for students entering master’s-level programs in Summer 2023 and beyond. Graduate students who began their enrollment prior to Summer Session A 2023 will continue to receive the scholarship that they are otherwise entitled to for the duration of their current academic program, provided they meet all eligibility requirements and maintain continuous enrollment.
