RECRUITING A MORE DIVERSE

STEM TEACHER POPULATION

The share of under-prepared math and science teachers increased to 40% in the 2015-16 school year—nearly double the rate of just four years earlier.1 Schools in low-income, ethnically diverse neighborhoods are most likely to be taught by under-prepared teachers.

Noyce scholarships recruit academically successful undergraduate, senior STEM majors, and STEM teaching credential candidates to become highly effective teachers in high-needs schools. The Fellowship program includes early recruitment strategies, strengthened preparation and mentoring, and a network of interpersonal and professional support that sustains students’ commitment to a career in teaching. Participants receive grants to offset the cost of their credential program and, in exchange, commit to working in a high-needs school district for two years after graduation from the teacher education program. The Noyce Teaching Fellowship program is a National Science Foundation funded program that provides students with lifetime access to a nationwide network of NSF Noyce Alumni, career development opportunities, and training workshops.
