Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program grant opportunity
The Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program seeks to encourage talented science, technology, engineering, and mathematics majors and professionals to become K-12 mathematics and science teachers. The Noyce Scholarship Track provides funds to institutions of higher education 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 NSF Teaching Fellowship/Master Teaching Fellowship Track provides funding to support STEM professionals who enroll as NSF Teaching Fellows in master's degree programs leading to teacher certification by providing academic courses, professional development, and salary supplements while they are fulfilling a four-year teaching commitment in a high-need school district. This track also supports the development of NSF Master Teaching Fellows by providing professional development and salary supplements for exemplary mathematics and science teachers to become Master Teachers while they fulfill a five-year teaching commitment in high-need school districts. Capacity Building Projects support the development of new programs and activities to increase the capacity for institutions to provide innovative teacher preparation programs that enable increasing numbers of STEM majors and STEM professionals to become effective K-12 mathematics and science teachers and to develop the capacity to prepare Master science and mathematics teachers.
The Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program consists of three categories of projects:
- The Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Track provides scholarships, internships, and programs for undergraduate STEM majors and stipends for STEM professionals seeking to become K-12 teachers. This track includes two types of proposals: Phase I proposals support new projects and Phase II proposals support the continuation, further development and evaluation of activities funded under a previous award. A Phase II proposal may continue to provide scholarships and stipends or may be used exclusively for continuing the evaluation of the previous award.
- The NSF Teaching Fellowships and Master Teaching Fellowships Track supports fellowships and programs for STEM professionals and recent STEM graduates enrolling in a master's degree program leading to certification to teach a STEM discipline. It also provides fellowships for current mathematics and science teachers to participate in a program for developing Master Teachers. Phase I proposals support new projects while Phase II proposals support the continuation and further development and evaluation of a previous award.
- Capacity Building Projects provide an opportunity for institutions to establish the infrastructure and partnerships for implementing a future Noyce Teacher Scholarship or NSF Teaching Fellowship project by supporting the development of new teacher preparation programs for STEM majors and STEM professionals and new programs for developing STEM Master Teachers. Capacity Building projects also support efforts to synthesize and disseminate effective practices developed by the Noyce community.
