The Robert Noyce Teaching Scholarship Program

Are You Ready To Make A Difference?

The MU Robert Noyce Scholarship Program seeks students who:

  • want to make a difference in students' lives;

  • want to teach students who have been traditionally underrepresented in the STEM disciplines;

  • aspire to be creative problem solvers;

  • see themselves as part of a teaching community committed to integrity;

  • see themselves contributing in a school in high need of quality mathematics teachers.

There is currently a demand for highly effective mathematics teachers in Pennsylvania and throughout the nation. Millersville University is addressing this need and is committed to providing teacher candidates the necessary tools for entering the workplace as highly-qualified mathematics teachers.

The National Science Foundation's Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program responds to the critical need for K-12 teachers of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) by encouraging talented STEM students and professionals to pursue teaching careers in elementary and secondary schools. The program provides funding to institutions of higher education to provide scholarships, stipends, and programmatic support to recruit and prepare STEM majors and professionals to become K-12 teachers. Scholarship and stipend recipients are required to complete two years of teaching in a high-need school district for each year of support.

With this goal in mind, the School of Science and Mathematics, with support from the National Science Foundation (NSF), has established the Millersville University (MU) Robert Noyce Mathematics Teaching Scholarship Program. This program offers:

  • undergraduate scholarships during the junior and senior years - each with an annual minimum award of $10,000; and
  • one-year graduate stipends - each with an award of $10,000.

The MU Robert Noyce Scholarship Program anticipates awarding eight (8) undergraduate scholarships and two (2) graduate stipends each year. Millersville University has a long reputation of producing highly effective educators and, with the support of the NSF, we will strengthen our standing as an Institution that produces the best mathematics educators.
