- STaR Program for Early Career Mathematics Educators.
Service, Teaching and Research are the focal points of the STaR
Program. It was initially funded by the National Science
Foundation and consists of a summer institute, academic year networking
via electronic means, and a regroup session in conjunction with the
annual meeting of the Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators
The STaR Program is now operated under the supervision of the AMTE, and
dependent on contributions from individuals, foundations, and
professional organizations for its continued operation. To date,
148 early career mathematics educators working at 113 institutions of
higher education (in 41 states) have completed the program. A
list of previous STaR Fellows and some current activities are available
The 5th cohort of STaR Fellows will meet in a summer institute in Park
City, Utah during the week of June 21-25, 2014. Eligibility is
limited to new faculty with a doctorate in mathematics education in
their first or second year of a tenure track appointment as a
mathematics educator at a U.S. institution of higher education. The
faculty appointment may be in a department of mathematics or a
school/college/department of education.
The application is available at http://matheddb.missouri.edu/star/. Completed applications are due by December 1, 2013. If you have any questions, contact Robert Reys.
