APPROVED K-12 SCHOOLS: Which Rural/Urban Schools Qualify as “High-Need”?
To qualify as “high-need” according to the National Science Foundation for the purposes of the Robert Noyce Grant requirements, a school district must meet one of the following criteria:
Scholars can locate a school or district using the same directory used for the National TEACH Grant.
Scholarship recipients are expected to teach in a qualified K-12 school for two years for every year of support received. Noyce Scholars are responsible for ensuring that the school districts they are teaching in qualify as high needs under the National Science Foundation guidelines.
Noyce Scholars can apply for funds to attend regional conferences and/or to join professional societies. Available funds are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. Please send an email request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Noyce Scholars will receive special recognition Noyce graduation stoles to wear during graduation ceremonies.
A reception will be held in honor of current Noyce Scholars. Family members and significant others are invited to attend.
Noyce Scholars are invited to join the Noyce networking site (Robert Noyce Scholars) on Facebook. Opportunities for Noyce Scholars (e.g., paid summer research experiences) and general educators discussions are posted.
The Noyce Project highly recommends several courses offered by Cortland Urban Recruitment of Educators (C.U.R.E):
INT 270: Exploring Education, Urban Emphasis
