Noyce Teacher Scholarship

The Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship

The Noyce Teacher Scholarship is made possible by a $1.1 million grant from the National Science Foundation to support increasing the number of undergraduate students pursuing STEM teaching and preparing them to be highly effective secondary educators in high-need schools.

Available to Marian University juniors and seniors, the Noyce scholarship can help diversify the teacher population in high-need schools.

Indiana is currently experiencing teacher shortages in secondary mathematics and all science disciplines, which negatively impacts the educational access of youth in high-need schools throughout the state. The Marian University Noyce program aims to address the teacher shortage by preparing undergraduates majoring in biology, chemistry, and mathematics to become secondary mathematics or science teachers in high-need schools.

Noyce Scholarship recipients can receive up to $15,000 per year for two years while at Marian University.

“It is especially critical to recruit and train secondary STEM teachers into highly-skilled, proficient educators, using the best rubrics taught by the most highly qualified education faculty in the state.”
