                       THE UVM FELLOWSHIP IN
            MATHEMATICS AND STATISTICS FOR VERMONT TEACHERS


The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Vermont
is pleased to announce a new program for Vermont mathematics teachers.
For a three year pilot period beginning this fall (academic year 2000-01)
the Department plans to award a special Fellowship each year to an
outstanding Vermont teacher who wishes to pursue a Masters degree in
Mathematics or Statistics at UVM, while spending a year as a teaching
faculty member in our Department.

The goal of this program is to provide Vermont teachers with the incentive
and financial support to undertake a program of advanced education in
mathematics while, at the same time, benefiting from interaction with
faculty and students at the University.  In addition to Masters-level
coursework, the  Fellowship recipient will teach UVM courses, such as
Calculus, to gain first-hand experience of the high school preparation
students need to succeed at this level.  The Fellowship recipient will also
participate fully in faculty activities, where they will exchange insights
with our faculty members on issues such as retention of first year students
in mathematics courses, curriculum development in light of high school
students' preparation for calculus, advances in the use of computers and
technology in mathematics instruction, and the education of future
mathematics teachers.  In this way, Fellowship recipients return to their
schools with enhanced and revitalized mathematical skills, direct
experience with pedagogy and technology at a university level, and a better
understanding of the UVM academic environment.

Following their year at UVM, the Fellowship recipient will continue their
special relationship with UVM as an ``ambassador'' between our Department
and their school, maintaining close personal communication on the many
facets of university-school partnerships.


THE FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM STRUCTURE:
The Department of Mathematics and Statistics offers four Masters-level
programs in Mathematics or Statistics, two of which (the MAT and MST in
Mathematics) are specifically structured for teachers.
Each of these programs requires a minimum of 30 credit hours of course or
thesis work.  During the academic year of tenure of the Fellowship, either
18 or 21 credit hours of a Masters program should be completed;
the remaining credit hours will be completed either before or after the
Fellowship year, by methods to be arranged.
(Since UVM allows up to 9 credit hours of transfer credit, some or all of
these remaining credits could be obtained via other institutions.)

While at UVM, the Fellowship recipient will fulfill the duties of a
Graduate Teaching Fellow; these currently consist of teaching one course
each semester together with directing 1--3 hours per week of help sessions.
The Fellowship recipient will have ex-officio faculty status within the
Department of Mathematics and Statistics, and will be assigned some light
committee responsibilities appropriate to their interests.


SUPPORT:
The Fellowship recipient will be partially supported by a UVM Graduate
Teaching Fellowship, which carries a stipend of at least $12,275 and a
scholarship of 20 credit hours tuition for the academic year.  This GTF
will be augmented by an additional scholarship of at least $20,000.
These minimum levels of support are guaranteed for the next three academic
years (i.e., through the pilot period for this new program).


ELIGIBILITY:
The UVM Fellowship in Mathematics and Statistics for Vermont Teachers is
open to teachers who are currently teaching in Vermont schools and who are
qualified to be admitted to one of the Department's Masters programs.
Special consideration will be given to mid-career teachers, and to teachers
in regions of the state were access to graduate programs in Mathematics
is difficult.


APPLICATION PROCEDURE:
Application for the Fellowship consists of completing a normal application
for admission to any one of the Masters programs in Mathematics or
Statistics
together with a separate letter requesting consideration for this
Fellowship sent to:

Dr. Richard Foote
Mathematics Graduate Director
Department of Mathematics and Statistics
University of Vermont
16 Colchester Avenue
Burlington, VT 05405

Applications received by March 15 will receive full consideration for
a Fellowship starting the next fall semester.
Decisions about admission to graduate programs are normally made in March
and April, and it is expected that the Fellowship will be awarded during
that time period (although it could be awarded later in the spring,
depending on the applicant pool).


FOR MORE INFORMATION:
Please contact Dr. Richard Foote at 656-8135 or [log in to unmask] .  The
Department's web pages contain detailed information about the graduate
programs in Mathematics and Statistics, and GTFs; these web pages can be
