About the Program

We pay for a masters degree.

Individuals with bachelor’s degrees in mathematics, biology, chemistry, physics, computer science, geoscience, or engineering may apply for a $29,000 stipend for one year to assist with tuition, fees and other costs associated with graduate school. College seniors in these majors are also welcome to apply. Noyce Scholars will earn a master’s degree and become licensed teachers. They will commit to teaching for two years in a school in a high-need LEA.

We are accepting applications now.

Support is provided by the National Science Foundation's Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program under Award No. 2049681.
