Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program

Establishing a Supportive Environment for the Recruitment, Preparation and Retention of Middle and High School Science and Mathematics Teachers

The Robert Noyce Scholarship Program at Towson University seeks to attract and prepare highly effective STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) teachers, and to create an ongoing professional teaching community of Robert Noyce scholars.

With the goal of increasing the number and quality of new teachers in the high-demand STEM fields, the Fisher College of Science and Mathematics and the College of Education, with support from the National Science Foundation, has established the Robert Noyce Scholarship Program. This program offers

  • undergraduate scholarships during the junior and senior years - each with an annual minimum award of $10,000 and
  • one-year graduate stipends - each with an award of $10,000.

This Robert Noyce Scholarship Program has students

  • who aspire to be creative problem solvers,
  • who are imbued with scientific conscience,
  • who want to make a difference in students' lives, particularly those students who have been traditionally underrepresented in the STEM disciplines, and
  • who are committed to the integrity of our teaching community.

All recipients are obligated, within six years of program completion, to teach for two years in a high needs school district for each year that they received scholarship or stipend support.

The National Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program website contains useful information for Noyce scholars and people interested in learning more about the program.
