The Barnard Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program (BNTSP) is funded by the National Science Foundation* and is part of a nationally acclaimed and effective venue for attracting outstanding STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) majors into the field of Education. Noyce Scholars and Fellows are some of the most sought after applicants for teaching positions nationwide. The BNTSP works to increase the number of women who teach and serve as role models and mentors for girls in STEM fields. The program serves as a model for the recruitment, preparation, induction, and retention of high-quality science and mathematics teachers for high-need schools. Innovative methods include the design, implementation, and evaluation of a collaborative, web-based, STEM teacher learning environment, which provides scholars with peer, faculty, and mentor support during student teaching and their first two years of teaching.
The BNTSP encourages talented STEM majors to become teachers in high-needs districts. Along with this, we equip the scholars with the capacity to improve the quality of math and science education offered in their schools. Scholarship recipients must teach for two years at an approved high-needs school for each year of support received. Scholars are eligible to receive $15,000 scholarships during their senior year, $4,600 towards a summer internship following their junior or senior year, and a $21,600 stipend to cover tuition, room, and board during a 9th semester for completion of the Barnard Education Program requirements.
The goal of the Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program is to produce over 7,700 teachers across the nation. For more information, please visit: www.nsfnoyce.org
