Noyce strives to address the need for excellent high school and middle school educators in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The program offers support to prospective teachers in the form of a generous scholarship, collaborative education research opportunities with university faculty, professional development and networking with past and present scholars. In exchange for this support, Noyce Scholars agree to work on a Noyce project of their choosing, participate in regular meetings, and upon graduation, work in a high-need school district for two years for each year they receive the scholarship.

PROGRAM FOCUS: Discipline-based education research, Undergraduate research. DISCIPLINES: STEM. EDUCATION CONTEXT: Undergraduate.
