This grant provides five years of support to the Fund for the City of New York (FCNY) to offset administrative and organizational expenses associated with the Sloan Awards for Excellence in Teaching Science and Mathematics, an annual awards program that honors exceptional math and science teachers working in New York City’s public high schools. Each year FCNY conducts a city-wide search for superb nominees from all five boroughs. Seven winners are selected by an expert panel of distinguished New Yorkers and winners are then honored at a city-wide celebration presided over by the chancellor of the NYC Department of Education. Winners receive a cash award of $5,000 and their schools each receive an award of $2,500 to augment their educational offerings.
