Information for Donors
A conversation between KPR's Laura Lorson and Steven Case, director of the Center for Science Education at KU, about UKanTeach and the innovative plan to direct some of the best and brightest scientific minds in the state towards teaching.
Why Give to The UKanTeach Program
The UKanTeach Program relies heavily upon funding from its generous donors. Donations support portions of the program that cannot be financed with state funding. The largest expense under this category is the Internship Program. Each semester UKanTeach funds 20 to 40 internships. These jobs provide our students with both financial assistance and practical education related experiences.
Another demanding area that requires attention is the Induction Program. While the State has mandated that the Universities continue to support their new teachers, no funding has been appropriated in order to meet this obligation. The first 5 years are the most crucial times in a teacher's career; almost half leave the profession within this period. UKanTeach has set the ambitious goal of continuing to support all its graduates who enter teaching. Some of the support has included professional development, and funding to attend professional conferences.
