MAA Travel Grants for Project ACCCESS

The Mathematical Association of America (MAA) is proud to support AMATYC's Project ACCCESS (Advancing Community College Careers: Education, Scholarship, and Service) with new travel grants for Fellows attending MAA MathFest or an MAA Section Meeting

About Project ACCCESS

Project ACCCESS is a program for new faculty interested in advancing the teaching and learning of mathematics in two-year colleges. Its goal is to develop a cadre of new two-year college mathematics faculty who are effective members of their profession. The four objectives of the project are to assist the selected faculty to gain knowledge of the culture and mission of the two-year college and its students, acquire familiarity with the scholarship of teaching, commit to continued growth in mathematics, and participate in professional communities.

Project ACCCESS Fellows attend two consecutive AMATYC Conferences where they participate in pre-conference workshops as well as regular conference activities. In the intervening year, Fellows attend an MAA Section NExT meeting near their home institution where they participate in both regular and specially designed activities. For the duration of the program, an electronic network links Project ACCCESS Fellows with each other and with a group of distinguished mathematics educators.
