The Noyce Scholarship
The National Science Foundation’s Robert Noyce Scholarship program is a $1.4 million grant awarded to Southern Connecticut State University (in partnership with Gateway Community College) to address a national shortage of highly-qualified STEM teachers. Scholarships are awarded to 30 SCSU students pursuing a bachelor’s degree in science (especially chemistry and physics) or mathematics to earn a secondary (grades 7-12) teaching certification through SCSU’s OwlsTeach program. Each scholarship recipient will receive full tuition and fees and up to $800 toward books for up to two years while in the OwlsTeach program (junior and senior year). In return, each scholarship recipient will agree to serve as a science or math teacher in a high-needs school district for at least four years after graduation. Learn more.
