Science & Math Education in Action


The ACTION program provides innovative opportunities if you're considering a career as a science and/or mathematics teacher.

If you're selected, you'll receive up to four years of scholarship funding through a Choose Ohio First grant from the Ohio Department of Higher Education. Being an ACTION scholar is a chance to be part of a close-knit community with faculty, staff and other students that lasts for a lifetime. In addition, the scholastic and co-curricular experiences offered through ACTION contribute to the exceptionality of these future educators.


If you're a high school senior considering teaching one of these subjects, the ACTION program may be for you:

  • Middle school science and math (grades 4-9)
  • High school science
  • High school mathematics

Stand out. Go far.

Prior to the freshman year, those selected as a member of ACTION attend a 3-week residential Summer Bridge program which includes hands-on science, mathematics and education sessions. First-year students conduct group research related to science and/or mathematics topics. As a sophomore, a hands-on internship is completed to obtain real world exposure to science and mathematics. And, finally, during junior and senior year, a capstone education-based research project is completed that includes data collected in a classroom.


To be accepted into the ACTION Program, a student must declare one of the majors below.
