THE ROBERT NOYCE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

North Dakota State University

The Robert Noyce Scholarship Program is to enhance the quantity of and quality of secondary science and mathematics teachers across North Dakota and adjacent states. The recruitment of talented STEM students into a quality teacher preparation program should improve student achievement in classrooms throughout this region, as well as increase the likelihood for successful matriculation of secondary students into STEM programs at the baccalaureate level. These initiatives help address the National Commission on Mathematics & Science Teaching’s call for immediate, large-scale workforce preparation of students to address positions that will open in STEM disciplines.


The Robert Noyce Scholarship Program at NDSU has two components:

  1. Noyce Scholars Internships: (applications open February 2011)
    • Paid summer internships to NDSU students with fewer than 60 SH to encourage secondary teaching as a career. These interns may be placed into laboratory or classroom environments alongside exemplary high school juniors and seniors who are participating in the North Dakota Governor’s School program.
  2. Noyce STEM Scholars: (applications open September 2011)
    • Scholarships covering nearly full educational costs to NDSU students who enroll in dual majors leading to certification and follow through on commitment to teaching two years in a high needs district for each year of Noyce scholarship support.

Minimum Criteria for the Noyce STEM Scholarship:

  • Earned more than 60 SH of course work.
  • Be a declared major in Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Engineering, Geosciences, Mathematics, or Physics.
  • Taken (or currently enrolled in) Education 321.
  • Cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher.
  • Be a U.S. citizen or national or permanent resident alien.


Minimum Criteria for the Noyce STEM Internship:

  • Completed no more than 4 semesters at a college/university at time of application.
  • Be a declared STEM major or science education major.
  • Cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher.
  • Be a U.S. citizen or national or permanent resident alien.
