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
proposals March 26.
FUNDS: $54.89 million is available for 15 to 20 Noyce Phase I awards,
three to five Noyce Phase II awards, eight to 10 Teaching Fellowship/Master Teaching Fellowship Awards, and eight to 10 Capacity Building Awards.
