If you’ve got a love of maths and a desire to teach you could receive £32,000 to teach maths - a £22,000 tax-free scholarship while you train and a further £10,000 after tax once in teaching. Other benefits of maths scholarships include membership offers, networking opportunities and professional development support.
Offered by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA) in collaboration with the London Mathematical Society (LMS), the Royal Statistical Society (RSS), The Mathematical Association (MA), Mathematics in Education and Industry (MEI), and the National STEM Learning Centre, the scholarship gives the best maths graduates the chance to start an exciting career in teaching.
As part of the scholarship, you’ll get access to superb professional resources and two years’ free membership of professional bodies. You’ll also join a community of like-minded and passionate maths enthusiasts, giving you the chance to be inspired, get support and share new ideas.
To qualify for a maths scholarship, you’ll need a 2:1 or higher in a subject with significant mathematical content. If you have a 2:2 degree, you are still encouraged to apply if you can also demonstrate relevant experience.
If you are looking to complete a subject knowledge enhancement course in maths before September 2018, you are also eligible to apply.
Prior to assessment, you should be able to showcase exceptional subject knowledge, dedication to teaching maths and the potential to become an inspirational and talented maths teacher.
