Noyce Scholarship Program

The highly prestigious, nationally recognized Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship supports exceptional students who plan to teach STEM fields in a high-needs school district with $10,000 per academic year. The scholarship, funded by the National Science Foundation, is renewable for up to two years.

Sophomores and Juniors who are interested in teaching STEM can earn a starting salary of $60,000. Certain districts in the State of Texas also offer additional stipends for teaching in STEM fields and in high-needs districts. As a Teacher, you also become eligible to apply for the Teach Grant (Federal Loan Forgiveness.)
For eligible scholars, the Noyce Scholarship Program can provide up to two years of SHSU tuition at $10,000 per year.
