Kodosky Foundation Scholarship for Physics Teaching

Through a generous gift from the Jeff and Gail Kodosky Foundation, we are pleased to offer up to a $1000 scholarship to undergraduate physics majors who explore the possibility of becoming high school and middle school physics teachers. This scholarship is available to undergraduate physics majors who take the first two courses in the UTeach sequence, UTS 101 and UTS 110 (Step I and Step II). Students chosen for this scholarship are awarded $500 at the completion of Step 1 with a B or better, and another $500 at the completion of Step II with a B or better. The hope is that they will continue on to obtain certification through UTeach, but if pursuing secondary certification is the right thing to do. There is no further obligation.

Eligibility: Declared undergraduate physics majors currently registered for either UTS 101 or UTS 110. Retroactive scholarships are not available. The scholarship is not available to degree-holders. Eligible students may pick up an application from the UTeach office in PAI 4.02 or from any physics academic advisor.

During fall semesters, applications are accepted beginning the second week of October through November 30th.  During spring semesters, applications are accepted beginning the second week of March through April 30th.  If the deadline day falls on the weekend, applications will be accepted the next business day. Students receiving the award are notified through a Secure Academic Note.
