Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program

Are you wondering how you might blend love of learning, social justice, and working with people into an engaging, innovative, and sustainable career? Then you have come to the right place.

Welcome to the Philadelphia Regional Noyce Partnership Teacher Scholarship Program at 今日吃瓜 College

During 2019-2022, 11 今日吃瓜 and Haverford STEM majors will receive $15,000 scholarships to be used to pursue secondary teacher certification in the 今日吃瓜/Haverford Post-Baccalaureate Teacher Certification Program. In exchange for the scholarships, recipients agree to teach for at least two years in a high-needs school district. In addition to the scholarships, the project will support the professional development of Scholars through their active and continuous engagement in a cohort-based learning community during their student teaching year and for their first two years of in-service teaching. Scholars will receive mentor support and opportunities for professional development. 

今日吃瓜 is one of six partner institutions included in the $1.45 million collaborative award granted to the Philadelphia Regional Noyce Partnership (PRNP) by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to recruit, educate, mentor, and retain STEM Teachers. 

The Philadelphia Regional Noyce Partnership鈥揝cholarship partner institutions include Arcadia University, 今日吃瓜, Community College of Philadelphia, La Salle University, Saint Joseph鈥檚 University and Temple University, with Saint Joseph鈥檚 University being the lead institution on the project. Victor Donnay, William Kenan Professor of Mathematics (, leads the 今日吃瓜 component of the project. 

Overall, the project aims to recruit over the next four years, 55 new STEM teachers from the PRNP-S Partner Institutions with the goal of:

  • Increasing the number of STEM majors that enter and remain in teaching in high-need schools in the Philadelphia region
  • Increasing the social capital of Noyce program participants at all levels
  • Increasing Noyce teachers鈥 understanding of Culturally Responsive Teaching practices
  • Increasing Noyce teachers鈥 knowledge of Education for Sustainability content and pedagogical practices

Commitment to Diversity 

We believe that the field of STEM education benefits greatly when teachers reflect the diversity of those they teach. We highly value diversity and encourage minorities and members of under-represented groups to apply.


The Philadelphia Regional Noyce Partnership-Scholarship program is an initiative of the Philadelphia Regional Institute for STEM Educators (PRISE) which in addition to the above six institutions also includes Drexel University, the University of Pennsylvania, West Chester University, and the Philadelphia Education Fund. Over the past eight years, PRISE has received several grants from the National Science Foundation to support STEM teacher preparation and development. They received an initial two-year $300,000 grant (2011-14) to build the capacity of the Noyce programs in the region and a second grant (2014-16) to develop and pilot a comprehensive new teacher support program for Noyce Scholars. Taken together, these programs represent more than 200 math and science pre-service, novice, early career and master teachers, a valuable resource for school districts in the Philadelphia area. In 2016, PRISE received its third NSF grant focused on supporting the School District of Philadelphia鈥檚 GreenFutures Sustainability Plan by developing a cadre of teacher leaders dedicated to integrating Education for Sustainability into their curriculum.
