The Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program
Funded by the National Science Foundation
Stonehill College has received a $1.19 million grant from the National Science Foundation that will provide an array of professional resources, and in some cases financial support, to mathematics majors interested in teaching and education majors interested in mathematics.
This five-year grant, which seeks to increase the number and quality of mathematics teachers (PK-12) committed to working in high-needs schools, has benefits for incoming students, current students and recent graduates who are now beginning their teaching careers.
A powerful combination of mentors and resources
Among the program’s benefits is a unique mentoring opportunity called “communities of practice”. This resource is designed to provide support and guidance to all education students from their first year of college through their first years as a teacher. This benefit is available during all four years at Stonehill to ALL mathematics majors as well as ALL education students.
Noyce funding will also create more opportunities for students to apply for paid research internships with Stonehill faculty and for additional field experiences at our partner school districts. More than 80% of the funds go directly to students, with exemplary students able to apply for $25,000 scholarships in their junior and senior years.
“By providing multiple access points for support, our teacher candidates will enter the field armed with solid teaching skills and the ability to sustain themselves as new teachers.”
