UCSB's Noyce Scholarship Offerings
The Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program, funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), responds to the critical need for K-12 teachers of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) by encouraging talented STEM students and professionals to pursue teaching careers in elementary and secondary schools.
COLLABORATION FOR OPPORTUNITIES AND ADVANCEMENT IN STEM TEACHING AND LEARNING (COASTAL)
For UCSB Teacher Candidates Pursuing a Credential in Science or Mathematics
Approximately 11 Noyce COASTAL Teacher Scholars will be awarded each year for four years, starting with the 2020-2021 academic year. Each Scholar will receive up to a $15,000 scholarship. They will learn about engineering by participating in the Dos Pueblos High School Engineering Academy (DPEA). They will also learn about informal science education centers by visiting MOXI (Santa Barbara's new science museum). Further, they will participate in cohort-building, educational enrichment, and career guidance opportunities. Finally, they can apply to earn an Industrial and Technology Education (ITE) credential in concert with their primary credential so as to teach engineering courses. In exchange for the scholarship, after graduation, Noyce COASTAL Teacher Scholars must teach for two years in a high-needs school district. See the federal website for a list of high-need districts. Note that one cannot receive both a Noyce and a TEACH grant.
