Who we are

Director: Dr. Meghan Marrero

This National Science Foundation Grant follows Mercy undergraduates from Junior year as Student Teacher Observers to their graduate Masters in Education working as full-time Student Teachers. After graduation, MISTI Scholars must work in a high-needs public school for 5 years to fulfill grant requirements. MISTI student teachers are currently placed in many high-needs middle and high schools in the five boroughs of New York City and Westchester County

NSF Funding

The Mercy College Intensive STEM Teacher Initiative project is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program.
