Math and Science Partnerships (MSP)

About the Program

Title II, Part B of No Child Left Behind authorized the Mathematics and Science Partnerships (MSP) program as an avenue to improve student academic achievement in mathematics and science by improving teacher content knowledge and skills in these curricular areas. Partnerships between high need school districts and the science, technology, engineering, and/or mathematics (STEM) faculty in institutions of higher education are at the core of these improvement efforts, and are one requirement for proposal approval. Project proposals are competitive and awards made accordingly.
