Noyce scholars will receive a grant of up to $15,000 per year during their junior and senior years and stipends to: attend a conference during their junior year; present at a conference during their senior year; cover the cost of certification tests and application fees for teacher certification; and assist with summer teacher workshops. In return, they will commit to two years of teaching in an area of high need for each year of support received.
