Nebraska Math and Science Partnerships

Nebraska Map and Science Partnerships Grant Program

The purpose of the Nebraska Mathematics and Science Partnerships (MSP) grant program is to fund partnerships of high-need school districts, four-year institutions of higher education, and other organizations, to improve the academic achievement of students in mathematics and science in elementary and secondary schools. 

News Release Announcing 2016 MSP Grant Award

Two statewide projects (one mathematics and one science) have been funded under the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act’s Mathematics and Science Partnership Program. The goal of both projects is to enhance the content knowledge and skills of Nebraska mathematics and science teachers; therefore enhancing student achievement. Project funds will assist with the costs of the selected teachers’ participation. Click here for additional information. This Nebraska grant program is federally funded under Title II, Part B of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act.

A related grant program funded under Title II, Part A (Improving Teacher Quality State Grants) may also be of interest.

Please check this web site frequently for more details as they become available.
