Internship

Program Description

The ORU MASST Internship Program seeks to encourage talented STEM majors to become secondary (grades 6-12) mathematics and science teachers. A goal of the MASST Internship Program is to recruit college freshman, sophomore and transfer STEM majors and provide them with opportunities to assist K-12 teaching and learning activities. Internships will occur at the Tulsa Dream Center as part of their existing educational summer program. MASST Interns will receive a stipend (taxable income) for the eight-week assignment. Additionally, the Internship will begin with pre-internship coursework in May through enrollment in 4-credit hours of ORU Professional Education courses. Tuition costs for the 4-credit hours of summer courses will be provided by the MASST Program. Ideal candidates demonstrate mathematics and science academic success and commitment to support mathematics or science education activities. Participating as a MASST Intern is a requirement for applying to be MASST Scholar, but does not guarantee selection.
