Are you a graduate math student hoping to become a middle school or high school math teacher? Do you live in Massachusetts and plan to work there after you are done with school? One program which may interest you is the Robert Noyce Scholarship offered by Boston University. This scholarship is funded by the National Science Foundation and the School of Education at Boston University. Six local school districts collaborate on the program along with the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. Each year, 13 students are selected to be part of this prestigious program.
What happens if you are chosen to participate? The program pays 100% of your tuition costs, and you are trained to become a math teacher. At the conclusion of the program, you will earn your master’s degree and your teacher license. You will then need to spend at least two years teaching in a high-need district. The ideal candidate can make this commitment and demonstrate that he or she loves mathematics and is passionate about teaching.
