National Science Foundation Robert Noyce Scholarships for Science and Mathematics Teachers
Scholarships for juniors, seniors, or post-baccalaureates at The University of Texas at Arlington seeking :
Secondary Life Science, Chemistry, Physical Science, Physics or Mathematics Teacher certification.
2018-2019 Academic Year: $10,000 Scholarship for 1 year (renewable for 1 additional year for UT Arlington juniors)
To be eligible, one must be either a junior or senior with an undergraduate major in either biology, geology, chemistry, physics or math seeking secondary teacher certification in one of those fields at UTA, or a graduate student with an undergraduate degree in either biology, geology, chemistry, physics, or math seeking secondary teacher certification in one of those fields at UTA.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
