Externships for Oklahoma Teachers

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



Teacher Externships provide educators with the experience to steer students to science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM)-related careers. This is accomplished by teachers working side-by-side with local businesses and organizations in or near the community they serve. What all Externship business partners have in common, is a commitment to STEM education in their communities and the capacity to provide a teacher with inspiring, meaningful projects that can be used to inspire students to pursue STEM careers in Oklahoma.

Externships will be for six weeks during the months of June and July 2021. 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.
