Grants & Awards
The Society for College Science Teachers awards one Outstanding Undergraduate Science Teacher Award (OUSTA) each year. The OUSTA winner is invited to present at the National Meetings on the year of the award, and also asked to speak at the Marjorie Gardener Lecture Series the following year. This prestigious award’s application is due each year by June 1st. For more information, and the application, click here.
In order to encourage its members to undertake scholarly initiatives, in 1987 the Executive Board of the Society for College Science Teachers (SCST) voted to dedicate $1,000 each year to help college science teachers who were members of SCST initiate projects that advance the objectives of the Society. In 1994, the Board voted to increase the funds to $1,500. The increase allows SCST the flexibility to fund a greater number of initiatives, or more costly initiatives.
