Robert Noyce Scholarships

This program is funded by the National Science Foundation (DUE-0733758).

The Robert Noyce Scholars program aims is to encourage talented Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) majors and professionals to enter into the teaching profession and teach mathematics or science at the secondary level. Each Noyce Scholar can receive up to two years of scholarship with stipends of $10,000 per year.

Noyce Scholars will be selected by consideration of academic achievement, under-representation and financial need. Scholarships will be awarded on a competitive basis. Selected Scholars are also involved in professional development and networking opportunities. In return, scholars agree to teach two years in a “high need” school district for each full year of support and participate in research surveys conducted by the Noyce Scholars program.

  • be a CSUC junior or senior undergraduate or graduate student at time of award
  • have a minimum 3.0 GPA in the last 60 semester (or 90 quarter) units of coursework
  • be a U.S. Citizen, national or permanent resident alien
