Interested in science?
Have you ever thought about teaching?
Are you considering transferring to Bridgewater State University?
Bridgewater State University has a program to help students who are interested in teaching science in the elementary schools or in high school, and Massasoit is working with them to offer this program to selected Massasoit students who will transfer to BSU.
Internships: These are paid internships as a teacher’s assistant in a summer science program for children and adolescents, typically lasting about 4 weeks in the summer. There is often training that is included and requires no further commitment on the part of the participant. This is a good way of seeing if working with kids is appealing. Application deadline: mid March.
Scholarships: Scholarships are given to science majors transferring to BSU. Applicants should have about 2 years left to their Bachelor’s degree and minor in education (elementary or secondary). It covers all academic expenses, including tuition , fees, lab fees, books, etc. and is worth $20,000 for the two years. The program will help graduates find jobs as teachers. Participants are then committed to teach science in the public schools for a period of time. Application deadline: August.
Also participating in the program are four public school districts. Opportunities for students also include volunteer experiences and possible employment in these schools.
