About the Program

Letter of Intent Deadline Date: February 9, 2010
Full Proposal Deadline Date: March 10, 2010

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 program 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 commit to teaching in high-need K-12 school districts. A new component of the program supports 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 new component also supports the development of NSF Master Teaching Fellows by providing professional development and salary supplements for exemplary math and science teachers to become Master Teachers in high-need school districts.

Who Should Participate in the Proposal Preparation Workshop

Universities and two- or four-year colleges (including community colleges) accredited in, and having a campus located in the US, or consortia of such institutions, or US nonprofit entities that have established consortia among such institutions of higher education may submit Noyce proposals.

For Noyce Teacher Scholarship Proposals, the PI, or at least one Co-PI, must be a faculty member in a mathematics, science, or engineering department. Education faculty may also attend the workshop.

Registering for the Proposal Preparation Workshop

Registration is available online.

During the registration process, registrants will be able to select a particular date from a pull-down menu. There are a limited number of slots available; up to two people per team, (but no more than two), should register to save space for other participants.
