Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program

We are currently accepting applications for Noyce Internship
and Noyce Teacher Scholarship Programs!

The Hampton University Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship program is designed to encourage and prepare talented science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) majors and professionals to become mathematics and science teachers. This program is offered by Hampton University (HU) in collaboration with the National Science Foundation and helps interested and eligible students to become highly qualified STEM teachers and pursue their teaching careers.

The HU Noyce Teacher program provides scholarships, stipends, and academic programs for undergraduate STEM majors and post-baccalaureate students holding STEM degrees who are committed to teaching after graduation from the program.

As an undergraduate biology or mathematics major and a Noyce Teacher Scholarship recipient, you can receive scholarship funding for up to a maximum of three years that includes:

  • $2,700 stipend for participating in an internship program in the summer between your freshman and sophomore year and the sophomore and junior year;
  • Scholarship funding that can cover up to the entire cost of attendance at HU annually during your junior year, senior year, and one year of graduate study!

In addition, this program also supports STEM professionals who enroll in the Master of Arts in Teaching degree programs by providing academic courses, professional development, and a $3,000 annual scholarship while they are preparing to or fulfilling their teaching requirement.

For each year the student receives the scholarship funds, the student is required to teach for two years in a high-need school district as defined in section 201 of the Higher Education Act of 1965 (20 U.S.C. 1021). Service must be completed within 8 years after graduation from the program for which the scholarship was awarded. Otherwise, the funds must be repaid.
