Support the UC Davis CalTeach/MAST program

To counteract the severe national shortage of K-12 math and science teachers, the UC Davis CalTeach/MAST program inspires, prepares, and supports future STEM teachers through providing STEM majors with the opportunity to explore teaching through active in-classroom internships and seminar-style courses. The mission of CalTeach/MAST is to increase the number, quality, and diversity of STEM teachers entering the teacher workforce.

You can help these students who aspire to become STEM teachers by supporting this campaign. The funds raised will grant two $2,000 awards to two outstanding UC Davis STEM students, one majoring in math and one in science or engineering, who have graduated and been accepted to the UC Davis Teacher Education Program for Fall 2023.

The awards will meet two important goals: to provide financial support for these future teachers in their credential year and to acknowledge the exceptional quality of their preparation to become teachers during their undergraduate years at UC Davis.

Our crowdfunding project will have long-lasting impacts because every newly trained STEM teacher will make a significant difference in the lives of thousands of students over their entire tenure as teachers.
