Mathematics And Science Partnership (MSP)
Grant Information

The U.S. Department of Education´s Mathematics and Science Partnerships (MSP) program is administered by the Academic Improvement and Teacher Quality Program (AITQ) in the Office of Elementary and Secondary Education (OESE) under the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, Title II, Part B. The MSP supports partnerships between the mathematics, science, and/or engineering faculty of institutions of higher education and high-need school districts. Other partners may include schools of education, business, and nonprofit organizations. The program´s goal is to increase student achievement through increasing teachers´ content knowledge and pedagogical skills.
The MSP is a formula grant program to the states; each state administers a competitive grants program, monitors their grantees´ progress, and documents their effectiveness, working with the U.S. Department of Education. All MSP projects funded by the states report to the federal government on an annual basis information on MSP´s impact on increasing teachers´ content knowledge and student learning. In FY 2003, the program converted from a department-administered competitive grant program to a state-administered competitive grant program.
