The Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program is a grant funded through the National Science Foundation to encourage talented science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) majors and professionals to become certified secondary (grades 7-12) science and math teachers.
The Mesa Community College Education Studies Department in conjunction with the Northern Arizona University Center for Science Teaching and Learning jointly facilitate the NAU Noyce Fellows grant, September 2010 - August 2015 (Phase I) with an extension to use remaining funds by July 2016.
MCC oversees paid Noyce internships in STEM-focused, K-12 summer youth camps in order to provide college freshmen and sophomores with backgrounds in STEM subjects and an interest in teaching a chance to observe and engage in STEM education.
NAU oversees juniors, seniors, and post-baccalaureate students that are selected for substantial Noyce Fellows scholarships and are enrolled in an NAUTeach secondary education STEM teacher certification program.
