Thanks to a grant from the National Science Foundation, the University of Findlay’s College of Education is now offering individuals the opportunity to be awarded $22,455 in scholarships to earn a teaching license in mathematics or science.
The Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program is designed for individuals who already have earned a bachelor’s degree in either mathematics or science, this program makes it possible to become a teacher in just one year and at no direct cost to the student.
“We are very appreciative of the support from the National Science Foundation to help meet the need for science and math teachers in our school systems,” said Dr. Julie McIntosh, dean of the College of Education for the University of Findlay. “This program is a fantastic opportunity for people who have a degree in math or science and are called to teach. This opportunity is a full scholarship to earn a teaching license in just one year!”
The program is currently accepting applications for fall 2021. Only 29 individuals will be selected to be a part of Findlay’s Noyce Scholarship Program.
If accepted, the students will earn a one-year post-baccalaureate license focusing on Adolescent/Young Adult (AYA) Integrated Mathematics or AYA Integrated Science education courses. During this time, students will gain eight weeks of methods field experience and 16 weeks of student teaching field experience under the guidance of a UF supervisor with a teaching license in science or mathematics.
