ROCK HILL, S.C. - The Knowles Science Teaching Foundation (KSTF) has selected Winthrop alumnus Matthew Neal '13, '14 as a recipient of the prestigious KSTF Teaching Fellowship.

The KSTF Teaching Fellows program – KSTF's signature program – offers stipends, funds for professional development, grants for teaching materials and opportunities for leadership development and mentoring for early career STEM teachers through a comprehensive five-year fellowship.

Neal earned his B.A. in mathematics (with a minor in computer science) and his M.A.T. in secondary education at Winthrop. A South Carolina Teaching Fellow, he spent six weeks teaching English and math to eighth graders at a private school in Shanghai, China, during his time at Winthrop. This fall, Neal will begin his first year of teaching at Fort Dorchester High School in North Charleston, South Carolina.

The Greenville, South Carolina, native said that he expects the KSTF Teaching Fellowship will help him "gain a network of knowledgeable peers who generate and share knowledge about effective STEM teaching practices."
