Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program
The Robert Noyce Scholarship program is a collaborative program of UNI, ISU, and UI to recruit junior- and senior-level STEM majors, as well as working professionals, into the teaching pipeline. It is funded by the National Science Foundation at $899,298 over four years.
This scholarship, named for the inventor of the microchip, requires that scholarship recipients teach for two years in a high-need school for each year of support. Complementary to IMSEP's freshman-level recruitment program, Iowa-Teach Mathematics & Science, the Noyce program helps the collaborative initiative achieve the goal of producing more talented science and mathematics teachers for Iowa schools.
