  • be a junior, senior or graduate student in the fall of the award year at a college or university in Ohio; 
  • be enrolled in a program that leads to an Ohio Resident Educator license in a field which includes the teaching of mathematics at some level, K-12 (Early Childhood (EC), Middle Childhood (MC), or Adolescent Young Adult (AYA)); and 
  • 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 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.  Applications are due on Friday, June 14, 2024.
