Teacher Scholarships: NSF Noyce Awards

Application Deadlines: Letter of Intent: Feb. 09, 2010; Full Proposal: March 10,  April 07.NSF_logo

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, and to support the development of master teachers of STEM subjects.

The NSF Teaching Fellowship/Master Teaching Fellowship Track 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 in high-need school districts. This track also 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.

• 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.

Innovation through Institutional Integration (I3) projects enable faculty, administrators, and others in institutions to think and act strategically about the creative integration of NSF-funded awards, with particular emphasis on awards managed through programs in the Directorate for Education and Human Resources (EHR), but not limited to those awards. For Fiscal Year 2010, proposals are being solicited in nine EHR programs that advance I3 goals:

• Centers of Research Excellence in Science and Technology (CREST)

• Research on Gender in Science and Engineering (GSE)

• Historically Black Colleges and Universities Undergraduate Program (HBCU-UP)

• Innovative Technology Experiences for Students and Teachers (ITEST)

• Alliances for Broadening Participation in STEM: Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation (LSAMP)

• Math and Science Partnership (MSP)

• Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program

• Research in Disabilities Education (RDE)

• Tribal Colleges and Universities Program (TCUP)
