Funding available for STEM majors who will teach


July 1, 2014



The Noyce STEM Teachers Scholars Program seeks to encourage talented science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) majors and professionals to become K-12 mathematics and science teachers.

This program provides funds 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 across the United States for two years for every one year that funds are received.

The scholarship amount for an undergraduate student is $10,000, and $15,000 for a STEM professional for the fall 2014 semester.

The application deadline is July 15.
