Become a Noyce Scholar
Through the Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Grant from the National Science Foundation, Baker students will be awarded a scholarship of $11,000 during their junior and senior years as they tackle a demanding course load that culminates in a double major in education and either biology, chemistry, or mathematics.
The program also addresses interview skills, grant writing, leading a STEM club, managing workplace stress, and conducting field research at the Baker University Wetlands. ASTRA graduates will be provided support to attend local, state, and national meetings to facilitate networking and continue to learn STEM best practices.
Baker is partnering with three neighboring school districts that will receive Noyce Scholars as student-teachers: Grandview C-4, Baldwin City USD 348, and Topeka Public Schools.
Each scholar is assigned two Baker faculty advisors: one based in the STEM department and the other in the School of Education. Each partner school district also recruits teachers to serve as mentors.
How to Become a Noyce Scholar
The deadline for submitting applications to become a Noyce Scholar is March 15 in the spring before a student’s third year in college (or the equivalent). Learn more about eligibility and requirements below.
