The National Science FoundationRobert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program (Noyce)invites innovative proposals that address the critical need for recruiting, preparing, and retaining highly effective elementary and secondary mathematics and science teachers and teacher leaders who persist as classroom teachers in high-need Local Education Agencies (LEA), (a.k.a. high-need school district). To achieve this goal, Noyce supports talented science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) undergraduate majors and professionals to become effective K-12 STEM teachers. It also supports experienced, exemplary K-12 STEM teachers to become teacher leaders who continue as classroom teachers in high-need school districts. NSF welcomes submission of proposals to this funding opportunity that include the participation of the full spectrum of diverse talent in STEM,e.g., as PI, co-PI, senior personnel, postdoctoral scholars, graduate or undergraduate students or trainees.In addition, the Noyce program supports research on the effectiveness and retention of K-12 STEM teachers in high-need school districts. Noyce offers four program tracks:Track 1: The RobertNoyce Teacher Scholarships and Stipends (S) Track, Track 2: The NSF Teaching Fellowships (TF) Track, Track 3: The NSFMaster Teaching Fellowships (MTF) Track, and Track 4: The Noyce Research Track. In addition,Capacity Buildingproposals are accepted from proposers intending to develop a proposal in any of the program's tracks. Noyce also supports conference proposals focused on improving STEM teacher preparation. Proposals that support authentic Research Experiences in STEM Settings (RESS) for Noyce and/or non-Noyce pre-service and in-service STEM teachers are also invited.
