CAT Scholarships Available to Math and Science Students

High school seniors and undergraduates seeking licensure to teach mathematics and science in grades 7- 12 are encouraged to apply for a CAT scholarship to help build a community of mathematics and science teachers for southeastern Ohio.

CAT scholarships can be awarded for up to four years at $4,000 per year at Ohio University’s Athens campus, Marietta College, Muskingum University, Shawnee State University and the University of Rio Grande. A modified version of the scholarship, which awards up to two years at $2,500 per year, is available at all five of Ohio University’s regional campuses (Chillicothe, Eastern, Lancaster, Southern and Zanesville).

Unlike traditional scholarship programs, CAT is a seven-year commitment. After graduating, CAT scholars have the opportunity to engage in a three-year professional induction program in one of the 29 Appalachian counties of Ohio. The scholars will receive additional mentoring from university faculty during this time to help them set and reach professional development goals as beginning teachers.

Further details and an application form can be found at the following website:
