This scholarship program is for students in the Science Teaching Accelerated Masters Program (STAMP). The scholarship provides funds for students enrolled in this accelerated program to complete their fourth year of their science major in the College of Arts and Sciences and a fifth year in the College of Education to complete their MAT in science education. The scholarship is intended to assist with the cost of attendance (i.e., tuition and fees) and other expenses.
In return for this scholarship, Robert Noyce STAMP scholars will commit to teach in the subject area of certification in a high-need school district for at least four years. In addition to the scholarships for STAMP, the program also provides five summer internships per year to freshman and sophomore science majors to conduct science education research. Scholarship recipients will receive $5000 each for their participation.

Knowles Science Teaching Foundation awards Teaching Fellowships to exceptional young men and women committed to teaching science and mathematics in United States high schools. We believe the commitment to teaching merits the deepest respect and support. Our Teaching Fellowship is designed explicitly to meet the needs of teachers from the time they begin working on a teaching credential through the early years of their career.
KSTF Science and Mathematics Teaching Fellows are chosen from among young men and women who have earned or are in the process of earning a degree in science, mathematics or engineering from a recognized institution of higher education. Fellowships are offered for individuals committed to teaching high school mathematics, physical sciences or biological sciences.
Applicants should have received their most recent content (i.e., science, mathematics or engineering) degree within five years of the start of the fellowship (June 1 of the application year.) An applicant might also be in the final year of an undergraduate, master's, combined BS with MAT or MEd program or near the completion of a doctoral program. Applicants who are currently enrolled in a credential program are also eligible to apply.
Applicants must be enrolled or plan to enroll in a recognized teacher education program that leads to a secondary science or mathematics teaching license. At the time of application, applicants do not need to be admitted into a teacher education program. However, successful applicants must be admitted into such a program before the fellowships are awarded in June.
