Funding Opportunity Announcement: Math Circle Mentorship and Partnership Grants.
Applications for Novice and Mentors due May 30.
Apply as a Novice Math Circle
Are you in the planning stages or first two years of your Math Circle?
Novice Math Circles leaders will learn to plan, implement, and sustain their own Math Circle program. We’re seeking teams of at least two people who lead or want to lead a new Math Circle program to apply to collectively participate in the program.
Your team will receive the benefit of funding to help start or sustain your Math Circle as well as a dedicated experienced Math Circle mentor, access to a community of experienced Math Circle leaders, the companionship of other Novice Math Circle leaders, and the opportunity to visit another Math Circle or be visited by your mentor.
Math Circle Mentors Needed!
Have you been involved for three or more years with leading a Math Circle?
Mentors will be assisting one or two Novice Math Circles to plan, implement, and sustain their Novice Math Circle. Benefits include grant funding for your Math Circle and the job of giving back to the Math Circle community!
September 15-17, 2016 at the University of Colorado Denver.
This three-day workshop will provide the opportunity to meet your Math Circle mentor and start planning or enhancing your own Math Circle. A Julia Robinson Math Festival will be the perfect chance to practice facilitating Math Circle-style problems, while the other workshop sessions will provide support for Math Circle program logistics.
Each Math Circle mentor and at least two team members from each Novice Circle leadership team will be funded to attend the September workshop. Please note: $100 registration fee per participant will be required for workshop attendance. Details will be sent upon acceptance to the program.
