Grants to USA colleges, universities, and professional societies to provide educational opportunities to IHE students and K-12 education professionals. Funding is intended to address the need for additional qualified science and mathematics teachers in elementary and secondary education agencies that are considered high-need.

The National Science Foundation Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program seeks to encourage talented science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) majors and professionals to become K-12 mathematics and science (including engineering and computer science) teachers. The program invites creative and innovative proposals that address the critical need for recruiting and preparing highly effective elementary and secondary science and mathematics teachers in high-need local educational agencies. The program offers four tracks: Track 1: The Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarships and Stipends Track, Track 2: The NSF Teaching Fellowships Track, Track 3: The NSF Master Teaching Fellowships Track, and Track 4: Noyce Research Track.  In addition, Capacity Building proposals are accepted from proposers intending to develop a future Track 1, 2, or 3 proposal. 

Capacity Building Proposals: Funds for Capacity Building awards, which may lead to the development of full proposals in Track 1: S&S, Track 2: TF, or Track 3: MTF, are supported. These funds are for institutions to develop evidence-based innovative models and strategies for recruiting, preparing, and supporting teachers and to establish the infrastructure for implementing a future Noyce project. For more information, see https://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2017/nsf17541/nsf17541.pdf#page=4.

Track 1: The Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarships and Stipends Track (S&S): The Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarships and Stipends Track (S&S) of the Noyce Program offers awards to institutions to recruit and prepare STEM teachers. These projects provide scholarships to undergraduate STEM majors and offer stipends to STEM professionals who become certified STEM teachers. For more information on Track 1, see https://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2017/nsf17541/nsf17541.pdf#page=5.

Track 2: The National Science Foundation Teaching Fellowships Track (TF): The NSF Teaching Fellowships Track (TF) of the Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program offers awards to institutions to administer fellowships and programmatic support to STEM professionals as defined in the Definitions of Terms section. For more information on Track 2, see https://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2017/nsf17541/nsf17541.pdf#page=6.

Track 3: The National Science Foundation Master Teaching Fellowships Track (MTF): The NSF Master Teaching Fellowships Track (MTF) of the Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program offers awards to institutions to administer fellowships and programmatic support to experienced and exemplary K-12 STEM teachers, who are certified/licensed teachers, who possess a master's or bachelor's degree in their field, and who participate in a program for developing master teachers and teacher leaders. For more information on Track 3, see https://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2017/nsf17541/nsf17541.pdf#page=7.

Track 4: The Noyce Research Track: The Noyce Research Track of the Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program offers awards to institutions, professional societies, and similar organizations that are directly associated with educational or research activities, to support planning, exploratory research, and research proposals that address the issue of STEM teacher effectiveness, persistence, or retention in high-need local educational agencies. For more information on Track 4, see https://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2017/nsf17541/nsf17541.pdf#page=8.
