The Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program at William and Mary seeks to encourage talented science and mathematics majors and professionals to become mathematics and science teachers for grades 6-12. Sponsored by the National Science Foundation, scholarships of $10,000 per year are given to students who are science and mathematics majors to obtain a teaching certification through the William and Mary School of Education. Noyce Scholars commit to teaching at a high-need school district for two years within six years of their science teacher certification.
Current Noyce scholars include eight graduate students and two undergraduate students. Faculty and administrators in both the School of Arts and Sciences and the School of Education are dedicated to mentoring Noyce Scholars throughout their studies, clinical practice, and early teaching career.
