USF Robert Noyce STEM Scholars Program
The University of South Florida (USF) Robert Noyce Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Scholars program provides stipends to STEM professionals so that they can earn their teaching credentials in mathematics or science by enrolling in a one-year accelerated Masters of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program. The objectives of the USF Robert Noyce STEM Scholars program are to:
- Recruit content knowledgeable STEM professionals, both change-of-career and recent graduates, to participate in a state-approved initial teacher certification MAT program for mathematics or science at the secondary level (grades 6-12).
- Prepare STEM professionals to be effective mathematics or science teachers of diverse learners in high needs school districts in the Tampa-bay area.
- Continue relationships with and provide support to USF Robert Noyce STEM Scholars throughout their first two years of teaching.
- Engage USF STEM Scholars in ongoing professional development through non-coursework activities and experiences designed to develop a professional learning community to provide long-term peer support.
