NOYCE Program

Our program seeks to enhance the quantity and quality of secondary science and mathematics teachers across North Dakota and adjacent states.

Noyce Scholars and Interns Program

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.

This program currently offers two opportunities for NDSU students.

Noyce Interns

Interns are second-year students who work with the College of Science and Mathematics Learning Assistants Program during the academic year. Interns earn a $4000 stipend for serving as an LA for 2 semesters and completing a discipline-based educational research project.

Minimum Criteria for Noyce Interns:

  • Completed no more than 4 semesters at a college/university at time of application
  • Be a declared STEM major, science education major, or mathematics education major
  • Have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher
  • Be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident

Apply to the 2024-25 Noyce Intern program

Noyce Scholars

Scholars are 3rd-5th year students who are dual majors in education and science or mathematics. Scholars earn a $15,000 stipend each year they participate in the program. There is a 2-year teaching commitment required after graduation for each year of scholarship awarded.

Minimum Criteria for Noyce Scholars:

  • Earned more than 60 credit hours of course work
  • Be a declared major in Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Engineering, Geosciences, Mathematics, or Physics
  • Completed (or currently enrolled in) Education 321
  • Have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher
  • Be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident
