Program Overview

The U.S. Department of Education's Mathematics and Science Partnerships (MSP) Program is administered by the Academic Improvement and Teacher Quality Program in the Office of Elementary and Secondary Education under the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, Title II, Part B. The MSP supports partnerships between STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) faculty of institutions of higher education and high-need school districts. Other partners may include state education agencies, public charter schools or other public schools, businesses, and nonprofit or for-profit organizations concerned with mathematics and science education. The program is intended to increase the academic achievement of students in mathematics and science by enhancing the content knowledge and teaching skills of classroom teachers.

The Math and Science Partnerships Program is a formula grant program to the states, with the size of individual state awards based on student population and poverty rates. No State receives less than one half of one percent of the total appropriation. With these funds, each State is responsible for administering a competititve grant competition, in which grants are made to partnerships to improve teacher knowledge in STEM fields. The State monitors their grantees' progress, and documents their effectiveness, working with the U.S. Department of Education. All MSP projects funded by the states report to the federal government on an annual basis information on their impact on increasing teachers' content knowledge and student learning.
