Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship (NOYCE) Program
Between January 2010 and June 2017, QEM conducted ten proposal development and follow-up workshops to prepare faculty at minority-serving institutions to submit competitive proposals to the National Science Foundation (NSF)’s Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship (NOYCE) Program. The NOYCE program, which is in the NSF Division of Undergraduate Education, seeks to encourage talented science, technology, engineering, and mathematics majors and professionals to become K-12 mathematics and science teachers.
The program offers four tracks: Track 1: The Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarships and Stipends Track; Track 2: The NSF Teaching Fellowships Track; Track 3: The NSF Master Teaching Fellowships Track; and Track 4: Noyce Research Track. In addition, Capacity Building proposals are accepted from proposers intending to develop future Tracks 1, 2, or 3 proposals (visit the NOYCE program page at the NSF website for more information).
QEM NOYCE proposal development workshops provide faculty with information such as NSF merit review criteria; the components and characteristics of competitive proposals; teacher preparation; on-campus collaborations between STEM faculty and K-12 science and mathematics educators; and project evaluation.
