Robert Noyce Scholarship Program for Math and Science Teachers
The Robert Noyce Scholarship Program for Math and Science Teachers seeks to encourage talented Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) majors and professionals who might otherwise not have considered the teaching profession, particularly those from underrepresented groups. Each Noyce Scholar receives a maximum of three years of scholarship support of up to $10,000 per year. In addition, Sonoma State provides support to the scholars throughout the period covered by the scholarships and up to two years after to assist the scholars to reach their goal of a credential and a teaching position. Noyce Scholars are selected by consideration of academic achievement, under-representation and financial need. Preference will be given to those seeking a single subject credential in Biology, Chemistry, Geosciences, Mathematics, and Physics. Foundational-level General Science and Foundational-level Mathematics credentials are not included.
Noyce Scholars agree to teach in high-need schools for at least two years for every year of scholarship support.
