    STEM Mathematics Education Partnership Program

    The Mathematics Education Partnership Program (MEPP) is a National Security Agency outreach program to promote mathematics and science education at non-profit educational institutions. Working within the Associate Directorate of Education and Training, the MEPP staff coordinates the activities of hundreds of Agency volunteers.

    Much effort is concentrated on helping local area schools through four main programs listed below.
         1.  The Mathematics Speakers Bureau: Speakers visit schools and present a variety of interactive mathematics and science talks authored by the
              volunteers.
         2.  Current Speaker's Bureau Catalog of Topics
         3.  Forms:          NSA Mathematics Speaker's Bureau Request Form
              NSA Math Speaker's Bureau Evaluation Form for Teachers
         4.  The School Partnerships Program: Continuing relationships are maintained between schools and volunteers who spend part of their work week
              providing tutoring, computer help, or math and science enrichment activities.
         5.  Math/Science Fair Judges: NSA provides judges to local K-12 math/science fairs. 
         6.  Grants and Cooperative Agreements: NSA has a small, competitive grants program for STEM-related student programs and teacher development
              opportunities. Requests for proposals are sent to interested parties once a year. Email mepp@nsa.gov for information on how to apply.
