The Metro Detroit TRUE Project is an accelerated graduate level certification and residency program for recent graduates and mid-career professionals in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) or computer science (CS) fields.

TRUE allows participants to earn a Wayne State University master’s degree and teaching certification in secondary mathematics or science within 18 months while receiving a living stipend. Participants will also receive mentoring support throughout the program and for two years post graduation.

Participants must commit to a one-year residency in the Detroit Public School Community District or the Dearborn Public Schools district, and a three-year commitment to teaching in either DPSCD or DPS.

Participants must hold a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution, have a background in STEM or computer science, and demonstrate a desire to make a difference in education. Inquire today to start making a difference.
