MUREP - 2017

June 26 – 30, 2017

Funding from NASA Minority University Research and Education Project (MUREP) provides the opportunity for Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) to participate in 5-day MUREP Educator Institutes at each of the 10 NASA Centers. Institutes are comprised of student-centered classroom activities that utilize NASA assets and resources and will help educators develop instructional practices that will enhance STEM instruction for all students.
  • Eligible participants are U.S. citizens enrolled in pre-service or alternate route teacher preparation programs at Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs). 
  • MSIs are encouraged to send a team of up to 5 pre-service teachers (elementary and/or secondary candidates in STEM fields) and a faculty sponsor. 
  • Participants engage in Pre-Institute online instruction, a 5-day on-site Institute experience at a NASA Center, and on-line Post-Institute instruction. 
  • Participants are provided with lodging, breakfasts and lunches, and a $500 stipend.

The team meeting is STEP 4 inside the Pre-Institute Badge for the students as well as your faculty badge.  This step will give all participants 2 hours of the required 9 hours of pre-institute work.  The deadline to complete the Pre-Institute badge is April 21st.  In order to receive the first installment, $250, faculty and students must meet that deadline.  The payments will go out in middle to late May.
