The highly prestigious and nationally-recognized Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship recognizes exceptional students that plan on teaching math or science in a high-need school district with up to $5,000 per semester or $10,000 per academic year, funded by the National Science Foundation.
The scholarship requires that recipients commit to completing one year of full-time teaching in a high-need school district or educational agency for each semester of scholarship support, to be completed within eight years after graduation from a credential program. If these terms are not met, the scholarship is repayable.
