The Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program is a national initiative sponsored by the National Science Foundation that seeks to increase the number of talented science, technology, engineering, and mathematics majors and career professionals who become K-12 mathematics and science teachers by providing scholarships, stipends and academic programs.  Awardees commit to teaching two years in a high-need school district for each year of support they receive.

Noyce in Greater Philadelphia

In the Greater Philadelphia region there are seven colleges/universities that are associated with the Noyce Scholarship program.

  • Bryn Mawr College
  • Drexel University
  • Haverford College
  • LaSalle University
  • St. Joseph’s University
  • Temple University
  • University of Pennsylvania

These institutions of higher education, along with the Philadelphia Education Fund and its Philadelphia Teacher Residency Program, have formed the Philadelphia Regional Noyce Partnership (PRNP). They received an initial two-year $300,000 grant (2011-14) from NSF to build the capacity of the Noyce programs in the region and now have received a second such grant (2014-16) to develop and pilot a comprehensive new teacher support program for Noyce Scholars. Taken together, these programs represent more than 200 math and science pre-service, novice and master teachers, both prospective and current, a valuable resource for school districts in the Philadelphia area.
