Eastern Ohio Council of Teachers of Mathematics
Welcome to the Eastern Ohio Council of Teachers of Mathematics Website!
The E.O.C.T.M. is a professional organization for mathematics teachers in the eastern part of Ohio. Our membership is made up of teachers from Mahoning, Trumbull, Columbiana, and surrounding Counties. We are an affiliate of the Ohio Council of Teachers of Mathematics and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.
Each fall, OCTM awards six $750 scholarships. Anyone interested in applying must fit the following qualifications:
● be a junior, senior or graduate student in the fall of 2023 at a college or university in Ohio;

● be a prospective first-time teacher (i.e. must not have taught professionally).
● be enrolled in a full-time graduate program related to the teaching and learning of mathematics for those who already hold an EC, MC, or AYA license that includes the teaching of mathematics at some level in grades K-12*.
Persons interested in applying for OCTM Scholarships must download the application form from our website (http://www.ohioctm.org) and submit the completed application, official college transcript(s), institution verification form, and one letter of support from a college/university faculty member or cooperating teacher.
