NSF’s Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program

The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded nearly $1.2 million to Salisbury University to offer scholarships to help produce more middle and high school teachers in science and mathematics.

About the Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program

The five-year effort offers $1,500 internship stipends to current freshmen and scholarships totaling $20,000 to current sophomores for their remaining two years. SU students may apply for the funding awards starting Monday, April 1.

Scholarship awardees are required to teach for two years after graduation for each year of funding received. SU students may fulfill this commitment in Dorchester, Somerset, Wicomico or Worcester counties, or another high-need district.

There is a critical need for science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) teachers in K-12 schools across our nation, and the Noyce program encourages talented STEM students to pursue teaching careers in these areas
