The Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program seeks to encourage talented undergraduate science and mathematics majors to become K-12 mathematics and science teachers. The program provides funds to support scholarships, stipends, mentoring and networking opportunities for undergraduate science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) majors who commit to teaching in high-need K-12 school districts.

The program is currently seeking undergraduate math and science majors interested in becoming teacher candidates, and also collaborating with Mercer County Community College to recruit transfer students interested in majoring in STEM fields and pursuing teacher certification at the elementary or secondary levels.

This project is a joint initiative of the University’s College of Education and College of Science and Health, in collaboration with Mercer County Community College and Paterson School district.

All students who participate in the program will be required to commit to two years of teaching in a high-needs district for each year of scholarship support.
