Oracle Academy Grants

Oracle Academy’s ongoing commitment to serving underrepresented students has funded a scholarship to endow 14 MESA teachers to attend the 2016 CSTA Conference in July. MESA prepares educationally disadvantaged students to prepare for, pursue and graduate from four-year colleges and universities with a STEM degree. MESA currently serves 25,000 underserved students in California. In support of the White House’s Computer Science for All initiative Oracle Academy has donated scholarships to support MESA teachers committed to increasing computer science literacy in underserved student populations.

The teacher awardees will be chosen from MESA schools throughout California and participated in JAVA training we offer in the summer. Our commitment to MESA provides teachers with the skills to teach computer science and support underrepresented students compete in MESA ALICE and Greenfoot competitions.

MESA teacher applications are still being accepted, please contact Juanita Muñiz-Torres at Juanita.Muniz-Torres@ucop.edu for questions.
