National Science Foundation Robert Noyce Scholarships for Science and Mathematics Teachers

Eligibility Conditions for Scholarships:
• Open to UTA Students: Juniors, Seniors, and Graduate Students with an undergraduate major or degree in any STEM field**
• Students must enroll in and complete one of the following UTA programs to earn teacher certification:
UTeach Arlington OR COED Post-Baccalaureate program

Computer Science Students: The UTeach coursework is similar to the coursework needed for a minor and includes teaching practice and preparation to
certify as a high school mathematics teacher. Once certified, CSE dept. majors can apply for certification to teach HS CS, game development, robotics, or digital
forensics.
*
STEM recognized fields include sciences (biology, chemistry, physics, geology, environmental science), technology (computer science), engineering, and mathematics.

Terms of this scholarship require students to complete the UTA program and earn certification, then teach in a high need district for two years (for each year of scholarship support) as noted above. Recipients also agree to attendance at Learning Academy Seminars, participation in mentoring and continued communication with the NSF Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program at UTA while completing requirements, including during first two years of teaching. Failure to do so requires the recipient to repay the scholarship funds in full to The University of Texas at Arlington. Acceptance of the scholarship requires agreeing to these terms.

High need districts include Dallas, Fort Worth, Arlington, Irving, Cedar Hill, Hurst-Euless-Bedford, and others.

Please note that for your application you must calculate your science and mathematics GPAs (you do not need to contact your advisor; this is something you are able to do). This UTA website provides information as to how to do so: http://www.uta.edu/universitycollege/current/academic-planning/uac/policies/gpa-calculation.php. On this page is a link to a GPA Calculator which can also be of assistance: http://www.uta.edu/universitycollege/resources/gpa/ .

Applications are available at http://www.uta/edu/noyce. Please provide official transcripts that cover at least your last 60 hours of undergraduate study and any graduate work. If you need further assistance, please contact Jamie Williams at caraway@uta.edu.
