For all NMSSI courses, Nebraska teachers automatically qualify for a fellowship equal to 20 percent of the cost of in-state tuition and the $50 fee for graduate school admission is waived. Additional fellowships are available on a competitive basis. Lunch is also provided to all teachers at all sites.
Designed with teachers' schedules in mind, a typical NMSSI course is 40 hours of instruction concentrated into a one-week period, or, teachers may take a pair of courses, each having 40 contact hours over a two-week period. Following this face-to-face instruction, some courses are completed using the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's Blackboard system online and then most courses conclude with an end-of-course assignment that aids in long-term retention of the material studied. This format allows for collaboration with colleagues while protecting most of the summer for other pursuits.
