Robert Noyce STEM Scholars Program

 

 

The USF Robert Noyce Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics (STEM) Scholars program will provide $30,000 stipends to 31 graduating seniors, recent graduates, and career changers who are interested in earning their teaching credentials in math or science by enrolling in a one-year accelerated Masters of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program as a full time student. The stipend is intended to cover the cost of attendance (i.e., tuition & fees) & other expenses. Robert Noyce STEM scholars commit to teach for at least two years in one of the following school districts: Hernando, Hillsborough, Polk, Pasco, Sarasota, Highlands, Manatee, Pinellas.

 

 

 

The objectives of the USF Robert Noyce STEM Fellows program are to:

  • recruit content knowledgeable STEM professionals to participate in a state-approved initial teacher certification MAT program for mathematics or science at the secondary level (grades 6-12),
  • prepare STEM professionals to be effective mathematics or science teachers of diverse learners in one of the following Tampa Bay area school districts (Hernando, Highlands, Hillsborough, Manatee, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk, or Sarasota),
  • provide pedagogical supports to USF Robert Noyce STEM Fellows throughout their first two years of teaching and engage USF STEM Fellows in ongoing professional development through non-coursework activities and experiences.

STEM professionals selected for this program will have demonstrated evidence of subject matter knowledge based on the degree obtained or identified coursework in appropriate content areas. These individuals will participate in a common core of education and disciplinary specific pedagogical courses designed to help them translate their subject matter knowledge into useable forms for teaching and encouraging secondary students to excel in the areas of mathematics or science.
