Noyce STEM Teacher Scholarships

The National Science Foundation is inviting grant applications for the Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship program, which encourages talented science, technology, engineering, and math majors and professionals to become K-12 math and science teachers. The Scholarship Track provides funds to academic institutions to support scholarships, stipends, and academic programs for undergraduate STEM majors and post-baccalaureate students holding STEM degrees who earn a teaching credential and commit to teaching in high-need K-12 school
districts. The Teaching Fellowship/Master Teaching Fellowship Track provides support to STEM professionals who enroll in master's degree programs leading to teacher certification while they are fulfilling a four-year teaching commitment in a high-need school district. This
track also provides professional development and salary supplements for exemplary math and science teachers to become Master Teachers in high-need school districts. In each track, Capacity Building Projects support innovative teacher preparation programs to enable more STEM majors and STEM professionals to become effective K-12 math and science teachers and to prepare Master science and math teachers.

DEADLINE: An optional letter of intent is due February 27, full
