In their sophomore year, Westminster students majoring in STEM disciplines can apply for the IQ: STEM Noyce Scholars program. IQ:STEM is funded through the National Science Foundation (NSF) Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program, which seeks to encourage talented science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) majors and professionals to become K-12 mathematics and science teachers. The focus of the program is to use experiential learning and increased practicum experiences to improve the quality of secondary STEM educators. A goal of the Noyce program is to recruit individuals with strong STEM backgrounds who might otherwise not have considered a career in K-12 teaching. Ideal candidates demonstrate academic leadership characteristics as well as a desire to increase their knowledge of mathematics, science, and/or education.
Prospective Noyce Scholars must complete an application, which includes: (a) three recommendations, (b) an essay, (c) transcripts indicating minimum GPA of 3.0. Strong applicants will be invited to interview with the selection committee.
Applications are due FEBRUARY 23, 2018 at at 5 p.m.
