The Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program, first authorized under the National Science Foundation Authorization Act of 2002 (P.L. 107-368) and reauthorized in 2007 under the America COMPETES Act (P.L. 110-69) and the America COMPETES Reauthorization Act of 2010 responds to the critical need for K-12 teachers of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) by encouraging talented STEM students and professionals to pursue teaching careers in elementary and secondary schools.

2014-2015 Scholars

The Lion's Roar Scholarship Program

The Lion's Roar Program has been designed to provide future math and science teachers with an integrated support network throughout their training and early career.

The National Science Foundation Robert Noyce Scholarship Program is designed to attract STEM majors with an aptitude and passion for math and science into K-12 teaching, and provide them with the skills and support they need to become effective teachers. Over the next 5 years 36 scholarships in the amount of $20,000 annually will be made available to talented juniors and seniors in the College of Science and Engineering. Noyce scholars will receive a one-year $20,000 Scholarship (with possible renewal for a second year) toward the cost of attendance at LMU.

The Noyce Summer Internship

The Noyce Summer Internship Program is designed to give students who are considering a teaching career the opportunity to work as a teaching intern.

Students chosen as Noyce interns will complete an 8 week science/math summer camp internship, volunteering in a program designed for K–12 students and participating in teaching related discussions with fellow interns.

Each intern will be placed with and trained by one of our partner organizations. The program is designed to help students make a decision about teaching as a career option. In addition to working in an established science education program, interns will participate in the Noyce Colloquium, a series of seminars designed specifically to highlight issues related to teaching with a focus on math and science.
