Teachers play a very important role with COSMOS. Eighty percent of our students hear about the program from a teacher. It is often the case that a student's teacher is the one who continues to encourage them to apply and provides information about the benefits and financial assistance available. To learn more about how a student applies refer to the How to Apply page.
When students apply to COSMOS they are required to submit two math and/or science teacher recommendations. When a student applies to COSMOS they will submit your email which will then prompt the online system to send you a link (be sure to check your Junk box). Your recommedation will be returned to us electronically. To preview what the recommendation form looks like and prepare your responses use the Teacher Recommendation Worksheet.
Additionally, there are opportunities for teachers to engage in COSMOS as well. Each summer we hire teachers in the fields of math and science to work with one of our nine clusters. Take a look at Teacher Fellowships for more information. For an application, please see our Employment page.
