STaR Program for Early Career Mathematics Educators

Applications now being accepted for the 2014 Cohort

The Service, Teaching and Research (STaR) Program is a 1 year
induction program for early career mathematics educators working at
institutions of higher education. The program was initiated through
a grant from the National Science Foundation. It includes a 5-day
summer institute, academic year networking via electronic means, and
a follow-up session in conjunction with the annual meeting of the
Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators (AMTE).

The Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators provides a
professional home for the program. 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 a summary of some current activities are available at
http://starfellows.com .

The program is now accepting applications for the 5th cohort of STaR
Fellows. This cohort will meet for the summer institute in Park
City, Utah June 21-26, 2014 and then again for a half-day session in
conjunction with the 2015 Annual Conference (February 12-14, 2015 in
Orlando, FL). 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. Admission is
competitive as space is limited to 30 Fellows.

Application materials are available at
http://matheddb.missouri.edu/star/. Completed applications are due
by December 1, 2013. Applicants will be notified by December 31,
2013. If you have any questions, contact Robert Reys at
