Over the next four years, the UNT Departments of Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics, and Teacher Education and Administration, in conjunction with the North Texas Rural School Consortium, and Irving, Richardson, and Denton ISDs, will offer a total of 55 scholarships and stipends in the amount of $10,000 per academic year to support the preparation of secondary science and mathematics teachers.
