Teacher externships through the Tulsa Regional STEM Alliance (TRSA)

Tulsa Externships for Teachers

Support local educators by hosting a teacher for a summer externship.



Externships will be for six weeks during the months of June and July 2018. During this time, teachers will follow a schedule that mirrors a school day.

As a part of the program, businesses will give teachers a $5,000 salary. 

What will the teachers do?

Throughout their externships, teachers’ responsibilities will include:

  • Project Management
  • Statistics
  • Communication
  • Organization
  • Training and Recruiting
  • Community Outreach

At the end of the externship, teachers will transform their experiences into engaging lesson plans.

For more information, check out these reports from last year’s participants.


Business registration is due April 2.

Application deadline for teachers is April 20. Interviews will take place in May.

Participating Companies

We will update this list until business registration closes on April 2.
