NJ STEM Innovation Fellowship 22-23

On behalf of Montclair State University, we are pleased to announce that the application for the NJ STEM Innovation Fellowship in science is now open! This science initiative, led by Professional Resources in Science and Mathematics (PRISM) at Montclair, is an exciting teacher-leadership program available to experienced, licensed middle school (grades 6, 7 and 8) science teachers.

  • Applicants for AY 2022/2023 must be working in a NJ public school with at least 75% of their classes taught during the fellowship year as science content for grades 6, 7 and/or 8.
  • Teachers participating in the science fellowship will apply to work as part of a 3-teacher team from their school/district.
  • Educators accepted to the fellowship will individually receive a $5,000 stipend and join a supportive learning community where they will learn about an innovative, research-based science teaching practice alongside talented science educators from other New Jersey districts and schools.
  • This year’s fellows will engage in Ambitious Science Teaching (AST), an innovative approach to science teaching grounded in eliciting students' ideas and supporting student sensemaking with NGSS three-dimensional science.  

Educators interested in participating in the NJ STEM Innovation Fellowship in science, can apply here now!  All applications must be completed by April 22, 2022. View FAQs and send any additional questions about the program to apply@innovatestemnj.org.
