Funding for Math & Science Majors

  • New Jersey City University has a variety of programs offering financial support for math and science majors:

    NJCU is a member of a 7-University National Science Foundation (NSF) consortium in northern New Jersey: The Garden State - Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (GS-LSAMP). The goal of LSAMP is to recruit, retain, and graduate increased numbers of STEM professionals, especially those from under-represented minorities, including African- and Hispanic-Americans and women.

    NJCU has secured an NSF Robert Noyce Fellowship grant of nearly $1.5 million to recruit and financially support 20 candidates in a fast-track (1-year) Master of Arts in STEM Teaching program. The successful candidate will have a Baccalaureate degree and STEM training in the field in which (s)he will teach.

    NJCU will partner with Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey (CWF) and the New Jersey Dept. of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) under the sponsorship of the USDA's Natural Resource Conservation Services (NRCS) to provide 24 student with internships and research experiences, and 1-2 students with full financial support to Environmental Science graduate school.

    NJCU has joined forces with several NJ universities on a NASA funded initiative to provide support to students conducting research in NASA or STEM initiatives.

    Opportunities for transfer students to participate in mentored research and scientific meetings as well as in tutoring.

    • Department of Education Title V

    Opportunities for outstanding Mathematics majors to work as tutors.

    Students who plan to pursue graduate studies should also consider submitting their credentials to the Council on Undergraduate Research, which matches undergraduate students with research experience and interests with graduate schools.
