Calling All MSIs

Funding from NASA Minority University Research and Education Project (MUREP) provides the opportunity for Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) to participate in 5-day MUREP Educator Institutes at each of the 10 NASA Centers starting Summer 2016. Institutes are comprised of student-centered classroom activities that utilize NASA assets and resources and will help educators develop instructional practices that will enhance STEM instruction for all students.

  • Eligible participants include pre-service and alternate route STEM teachers from Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs).
  • MSIs are encouraged to send a team of up to 5 STEM teacher candidates and a faculty sponsor.
  • Participants engage in Pre-Institute online instruction, a 5-day on-site Institute experience at a NASA Center, and on-line Post-Institute instruction.
  • Participants are provided with lodging, breakfasts and lunches, and a $500 stipend.
