The State University of New York is now accepting a third round of applications for the New York State Master Teacher Program.

The program was established last year to identify, support and reward exceptional STEM educators throughout New York State.

319 teachers have joined the program to date, and up to 346 additional teachers will be selected during the next round, including 19 from the Mohawk Valley.

Master teachers will:

  • Receive a $15,000 stipend per year over 4 years for participation in the program (total compensation of $60,000 per teacher).
  • Engage in intensive content-oriented professional development and peer mentoring opportunities throughout the academic year.
  • Work closely with pre-service and early career teachers to foster a supportive environment for the next generation of STEM teachers.
  • Attend regular cohort meetings and participate in and lead professional development activities throughout the year.

“The Master Teacher Program is creating a critical pipeline of expert STEM teachers across New York State and SUNY is proud to be a part of its implementation,” said SUNY Chancellor Nancy Zimpher. “By incentivizing the best and brightest in every region to pursue a teaching degree and career in New York, and to mentor their peers in the process, the Master Teacher program is a win for our students, our schools and our economy. We look forward to giving even more teachers this unique opportunity.”

Interested teachers can review the application requirements online at the SUNY Master Teacher web page.

The deadline to apply is in September.
