Mercy College received an award to provide twenty (20) veterans of the United States Armed Forces, who have strong math backgrounds, with a TUITION-FREE Master of Science Degree in Secondary Math Education leading to New York State certification, a credential recognized by many other states.

The program spans 14 months and the first cohort of veterans has already completed their summer coursework. The second cohort begins on June 1, 2018 and the curriculum and activities mirror the first cohort.

Mercy College strongly believes this program will provide veterans with a new gateway to a purposeful life in a deserving community. As important, we strongly believe that these mature men and women will provide qualities of leadership, strength and teamwork to the profession, improve capacity-building in their schools, and act as professional and personal role models for secondary school students. We also believe that this program will bring benefits to high-need schools in terms of providing a new pool of STEM teachers.
