Noyce Scholars Programs in Mathematics and Science

Applications for Science Noyce Phase II Scholarships due October 3, 2014!

The Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship program is a National Science Foundation funded program to provide scholarships to students who are committed to teaching science or mathematics in high need school districts upon the completion of a teacher credential program. The main goal of the program is to increase the number of teachers with strong science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) content knowledge in high need school districts.

This webpage provides information on both programs and targets prospective Noyce applicants, current Noyce Scholars, and Noyce alumni. There are minor variations between the Math Noyce Scholars Program and the Science Noyce Scholars Program. 

Definition of High Need School District

Noyce Scholars commit to teach for two years at any school in a high need district for each year of scholarship funding received. "High need" is defined as a school district with at least one school with:

  • a high percentage of individuals from families with incomes below the poverty line;
  • a high percentage of secondary school teachers not teaching in the content area in which the teachers were trained to teach; OR
  • a high teacher turnover rate.
