McNeese offers graduate fellowship in environmental and chemical sciences

The McNeese State University Chemistry and Physics Department is currently taking applications for a graduate fellowship through the Doré School of Graduate Studies and Extended Education that leads to the Master of Science degree in environmental and chemical sciences.

The fellowship is available for a currently certified Louisiana high school or middle school teacher to begin studies for the fall 2014 semester.

The recipient will be awarded a $26,500 graduate level fellowship funded by the Board of Regents' Support Fund. The fellowship includes tuition, most fees and a stipend award for fall 2014, spring 2015, summer 2015 and summer 2016.

The teacher will take classes, perform research and teach a freshman chemistry lab section. After completion of the degree, the teacher must return to a Louisiana classroom and teach full time for one year, according to Dr. Joseph Sneddon, McNeese chemistry professor and coordinator of the fellowship program.

Sneddon said there is a need for better-prepared science teachers in Louisiana. "Our hope is that area teachers will take advantage of this opportunity at McNeese."
