Attention Science Majors who will graduate from SDSU!!

Apply to Become a Noyce Scholar!


Do you love sharing your passion for science with others?
Do you want to positively influence students’ lives?
Do you enjoy working with middle or high school students?

If you answered YES to any of the questions above, teaching science may be a wonderful career option for you!

You have the opportunity to cultivate a love for learning science by becoming a science teacher! SDSU is now offering  the opportunity to apply to become a Noyce Scholar and earn a $10,000 scholarship. Scholarships are available to those who want to become science teachers and who enter SDSU's well-respected credential program!

We recently held a Noyce Scholar information session about the application process on November 17, 2014. Please feel free to download the slides (PDF) from the presentation at this session.

For more information about applying to SDSU’s teacher credential program, visit

We seek prospective science teachers who are committed to learning how to teach science to every child who comes into their classrooms, who are genuinely curious about teaching and how children learn, and who understand that the credential program is but the beginning of their journey as a teacher and that they as long as they continue to teach, they will strive to continue to learn how to improve their practice of teaching.

We will begin review of applications on February 13, 2015.
 

Noyce Project LEARN at SDSEA

The science teachers in our Noyce Project Learn group presented at San Diego Science Educatiors Association (SDSEA) on March 1, 2014.  Go to our Project LEARN at SDSEA page to find out more.

On March 10, 2014, the SDSU Noyce Project Leaders hosted a reception and poster session for the Noyce Master Teaching Fellows, their school and district administrators, and the Deans of the College of Education and College of Sciences.  We were pleased to welcome 75 attendees. In preparation for the event, the Fellows shared some thoughts about the project, and we captured some of those sentiments on video. Watch the video below, and click through the slides that were shared at the reception (or download the slides as a PDF).

Project Description

The SDSU Noyce Mathematics & Science Master Teaching Fellowship Program
SDSU Noyce Fellows

Principal Investigators: Lisa Lamb, Randolph Philipp, Susan Nickerson, Donna Ross, Meredith Houle Vaughn, and Kathy Williams.   Funded by: National Science Foundation and Qualcomm. 

Finding inquiry-oriented mathematics and science teachers and helping them become even more effective is the goal of a new San Diego State University program that was recently funded by the National Science Foundation and Qualcomm, Inc. Over the next five years, 32 San Diego teachers are participating in the SDSU Noyce Mathematics and Science Master-Teaching Fellowship Program, thanks to a unique collaboration between the public sector and the private sector, with $3 million awarded from the NSF and an additional $500,000 from Qualcomm.
