$1,000 FELLOWSHIP IN SCIENCE TEACHING
ALTERNATIVE CLASS A CERTIFICATION PROGRAM
The non-traditional Class A program is designed to offer individuals possessing a bachelor’s degree outside of education the opportunity to earn a master’s degree in education with Class A certification. Further information, admission requirements and application procedures can be obtained from education departmental offices at Alabama colleges and universities offering this special certification program.
Recognizing the need for promoting superior science teaching at all levels, the Alabama Academy of Science has established an award to encourage scientifically trained students to enter the teaching profession. The William H. Mason Fellowship is $1000 for one year (non-renewable), and is tenable at any institution in the state of Alabama offering a teacher certification program. Awardees may choose to specialize in any area kindergarten through the 12th grade. Selection will be based on the extent to which the applicant shows promise for incorporating quality science instruction in his or her classroom.
Students who will have earned a B.S. or B.A. degree by the summer of 2017 are invited to apply for a William H. Mason Fellowship. Applicants must have the equivalent of a minor or major in a natural science, and must be applicants for a program leading to certification in teaching at any level K-12. Recipients will be required to teach in the state of Alabama for at least one year following the completion of the degree program for which the award is given.
