Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program at SU

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is partnering with SU to produce more mathematics and science teachers to meet one of our country’s critical needs. Noyce scholarships prepare SU STEM majors to become exemplary middle and high school teachers. Noyce scholarships provide $10,000 for junior year and another $10,000 for senior year to complete SU’s professional teacher education program and program enhancement activities. Renewal eligibility requires a cumulative 3.0 GPA each semester, financial need from FAFSA and remaining in an eligible major. For additional renewal requirements please contact the Department.

Applications received by March 31st. will be given first consideration. Applications will be accepted through April 30th pending availability of funds.

Scholarship recipients must agree to teach in a high-need school for two years for each year of scholarship funding received. As they fulfill this teaching commitment, scholarship recipients are formally mentored by an experienced teacher and a peer support community.

If you are interested in applying for a $1,500 freshman/sophomore level Noyce internship, please email Dr. Randall Groth at the email listed below for an application. You do not apply for the internship in Academic Works.
