In an email sent this morning to students, Interim Chancellor Cavalier notified the UTM community that the Noyce Scholars program would be extending its application deadline to April 15, 2023.
Noyce Scholars complete a Master of Science degree in Initial Licensure degree at UTM in one year, obtain a Tennessee educator license, and agree to teach for at least two years after completing the program. The Noyce program pays tuition and fees for the master's degree, and Noyce Scholars receive a stipend while in graduate school.
Individuals with bachelor’s degrees in mathematics, biology, chemistry, physics, computer science, geoscience, or engineering may apply for a $29,000 stipend for one year to assist with tuition, fees and other costs associated with graduate school. College seniors in these majors are also welcome to apply.
The UTM Noyce Scholars Program is funded by the National Science Foundation and seeks to increase the number of mathematics and science teachers in Tennessee. Support is provided by the National Science Foundation's Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program under Award No. 2049681.
