Educator Math Grants

The Actuarial Foundation will be providing a limited number of $500 grants to MTF Challenge educators (formal or informal) to help engage their students in STEM through the Modeling the Future Challenge. To apply for these grants, educators must complete the online form below describing how the grant would be used to help their students connect with STEM, particularly mathematics, using the Modeling the Future Challenge. Educators must describe what supplies, events, or activities will be purchased with the grant and how this will help their students participate in the challenge.

Grant Eligibility

Any formal or informal high school educator in the United States reaching 10 or more junior or senior grade level students (or the equivalent in an informal educational organization). Eligible educators can teach any subject, but must demonstrate a plan to use the MTF Challenge to engage their students in mathematics and encourage them to pursue mathematically related college and career opportunities.
