Robert Noyce Scholarship for Undergraduate Students

The Robert Noyce Scholarship fund was established by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and State University of New York at Cortland. The SUNY Cortland Noyce Project, sponsored by the National Science Foundation,
seeks to encourage talented science, technology, engineering & math (STEM) majors to become K-12 teachers in high-need rural & urban schools.

Selection Criteria

  • Minimum GPA of 2.85 overall (in undergraduate courses)
  • U.S. citizen, national, or permanent resident alien
  • Full-time enrollment (12 UG credits/semester)

Scholarship recipients are expected to teach, upon program completion, in a qualified school district for two years for every year of support received. Students selected agree to repay the NSF the amount of the scholarship received plus 5% (annual fixed interest) if full-time teaching services are not met (to be completed after award selection).
