Increasing the Number of K-12 STEM Teachers in High-need School Districts
The Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program seeks to encourage talented science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) majors and professionals to become K-12 mathematics and science teachers. The program 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 commit to teaching in high-need K-12 school districts. At Mississippi State University, these scholarships and stipends are awarded through the Noyce STEM Teachers Scholars Program.
The Robert Noyce Scholarship Program at Mississippi State has opportunities available for four (4) junior/senior mathematics and science majors to pursue a double major in the STEM content areas and in math education or science education. Also, there are opportunities for four (4) post-baccalaureate students holding STEM degrees. Undergraduate recipients will receive $10,000 scholarships for Fall 2014 and a $20,000 stipend is available to STEM professionals. Please contact Dr. Linda Coats at LCoats@colled.msstate.edu for more information on the program.
