University of Vermont National Science Foundation Robert Noyce Scholarship for Teaching

The National Science Foundation (NSF) Robert Noyce Scholarship Program strives to address the shortage of qualified K-12 science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM) and computer science educators teaching in underserved and underrepresented schools in the US. This competitive scholarship opportunity is available to graduate students accepted to our Master of Arts in Teaching in Secondary Education Program who are interested in teaching STEM in grades 7-12.

In-state students from Vermont are eligible for a scholarship in the amount of $20,000.00 per academic year. Out-of-state students are eligible for a scholarship in the amount of $32,000.00 per academic year. 

Eligibility Criteria

To be considered for a Noyce Scholarship, you must meet the following criteria:

  • Hold an undergraduate and/or graduate degree in a STEM field, including biology, chemistry, earth/geosciences, engineering, physics, mathematics and computer science.
  • Achieved a minimum 3.0 GPA in your undergraduate and/or graduate STEM degree(s).
  • Must be a U.S. citizen or national, or permanent resident alien.
  • Demonstrate a commitment to teach in a high need local educational agency for 2 years for every year of scholarship/stipend received within 4 years after graduation from the MAT program.

Noyce Scholars agree to achieve teacher certification in grades 7-12 science, math, or computer science education and gain a full-time teaching position within four (4) years of receipt of the MAT degree and certification in a high-need school district.

The term high-need local educational agency as defined in section 201 of the Higher Education Act of 1965 (20 U.S.C. 1021) means a local educational agency (for example, a school district) that serves an elementary or secondary school located in an area which is characterized by at least one of the following designations: a high percentage of individuals from families with incomes below the poverty line usually determined by the annual Agency of Education Free or Reduced Meals Report; a high percentage of secondary school teachers not teaching in the content area in which they were trained to teach; or a high teacher turnover rate.
