The Robert Noyce Scholarship Program is a collaboration between the College of Education, Health and Society, Urban Cohort Program, and The College of Arts & Science at Miami University and Cincinnati Public Schools. This scholarship responds to the critical need for mathematics and science teachers by encouraging promising science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) students and STEM professionals to pursue teaching careers in high-needs schools. With the support of funds from the NSF Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program, the partners aim to recruit students presently majoring in engineering, the sciences, and mathematics at Miami and graduates with these degrees to become Secondary Science and Secondary Mathematics Teachers.

The MU-Noyce program builds upon the Miami University’s Urban Cohort Program (UC) and benefits from its existing partnerships. UC’s community-based and culturally responsive approach to teacher education expands traditional education in that teacher candidates are incrementally and intentionally immersed in community and school-based experiences in their degree programs.

Pathways

The MU-Noyce Program will provide 2 pathways (all of which include an Urban Cohort experience) for scholarships and stipends to attract talented STEM undergraduates ($19,500) and STEM professionals ($20,000) into secondary (grades 7-12) science and mathematics teacher education programs at Miami.
