New MMT Scholarships

The CEMC’s Master of Mathematics for Teachers (MMT) launched two new scholarship programs for its Fall 2020 intake: the MMT Indigenous Scholarships and the Agibcona Scholarship. The scholarships are specifically for Canadian teachers, currently teaching mathematics at the secondary school level in Canada. The MMT Indigenous scholarship is funded by the Faculty of Mathematics. The Agibcona Scholarship has been donated by Barry Ferguson and Angela Googh.

The MMT Indigenous Scholarships offer five incoming students a maximum of $15 000, which will cover the full tuition costs of the MMT program. The MMT is an online program that is typically completed in three years on a part-time basis. Candidates have to illustrate the impact they have within the indigenous community and how the MMT will influence their classroom. These scholarships have been created as part of the response of the Faculty of Mathematics to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Calls to Actions.

Much like the MMT Indigenous Scholarship, the Agibcona Scholarship is for applicants who greatly impact their students, colleagues, and the indigenous community. The Agibcona Scholarship is open to teachers already in the program and who are currently teaching and working in an Indigenous, or northern/remote community in Canada, with preference given to incoming students. This scholarship is in the amount of $4200 to help cover one year of program costs. The donors created this scholarship “knowing firsthand the incalculable impact that a teacher can have for a single student, a classroom, even a school of math students”.

Scholarships have been awarded for the Fall 2020 and will be offered again for Fall 2021. For more details on the scholarships, please see Agibonca Scholarship and MMT Indigenous Scholarship.
