National Science Foundation: The Robert Noyce Scholarship for Science Teachers

"Don't be encumbered by history. Go off and do something wonderful."  -Robert N. Noyce

The goal of the Robert Noyce Scholarship Program at the University of Vermont is to identify and cultivate a pool of science undergraduate students and professionals who are interested in pursuing 7-12th grade science teaching positions in high needs schools and to provide the support, education, and guidance to realize this goal.

We are looking for:

  • Undergraduate science majors who are curious about 7-12 science education and would like to conduct summer research in the Noyce Summer Research Program.
  • Undergraduate science majors who are considering a career in 7-12 science education.
  • Senior science majors who are interested in applying for UVM's MAT program in secondary science education.
  • Professionals with a BA/BS in science who are interested in applying for UVM's MAT program in secondary science education.

Individuals with disabilities or from groups underrepresented in science and science teaching are strongly encouraged to apply.

Noyce Undergraduate Summer Science Research Program

Undergraduate first and second year students enrolled full-time in a science degree program will be awarded $4,100 to complete the 10-week summer research institute that couples aspects of 7-12 science outreach with educators engaged in scientific research at UVM.

Noyce Undergraduate Scholars Program


Undergraduate juniors and seniors enrolled full-time in a science degree program will be awarded a scholarship in the amount of $12,500 per year for two years as they complete their science degree and 7-12 grade science teacher licensure requirements.

Noyce Graduate (MAT) Scholars Program


Science professionals and majors who have completed a BA/BS in science will be awarded a scholarship in the amount of $12,500 for one year as they work towards an MAT degree and grade 7-12 science teaching certificate.
