Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program

The Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program seeks to encourage talented science, technology, engineering, and mathematics majors and professionals to become K-12 STEM teachers. Track 1: The Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarships and Stipends Track provides funds to support scholarships, stipends, and academic programs for undergraduate STEM majors and post-baccalaureate STEM professionals to become highly effective STEM teachers; these individuals commit to teaching for 2 years in high-need local educational agencies for every year of scholarship/stipend support. Track 2: The NSF Teaching Fellowships Track provides funds to support fellowships, academic programs, professional development, and salary supplements for STEM professionals, including retirees from STEM professions, who enroll in a master’s degree program leading to teacher certification or licensing; these individuals, referred to as NSF Teaching Fellows, commit to teaching for four years in high-need local educational agencies. Track 3: The NSF Master Teaching Fellowships Track provides funds to support professional development and salary supplements for K-12 STEM teachers, who are experienced and exemplary and who already have a master’s degree in their field, to become NSF Master Teaching Fellows; these individuals commit to teaching for five years in high-need local educational agencies. Tracks 1, 2, and 3 welcome Phase 1, Phase 2, and Capacity Building proposals.

Track 4: Research on the Preparation, Recruitment, and Retention of K-12 STEM Teachers provides funds to support planning, exploratory research, and full scale research proposals that address (1) a set of research priorities identified by and stated in the 2010 National Research Council’s report, Preparing Teachers: Building Evidence for Sound Policy and (2) issues identified in the literature on effective teachers and the retention of effective STEM teachers and teacher leaders. This track provides funding for two categories of proposals: Research Type A Noyce Partnerships for Research on STEM Teacher Preparation and Research Type B Research on Preparing STEM Teachers for the Future.

New college scholarship for Greek American students

Dear all,

I am pleased to announce the call for applications for the Archimedes Award — a new college scholarship for outstanding Greek American students pursuing studies in science, technology, engineering or math (STEM) related fields.

This is the very first scholarship to be offered through the Next Generation Initiative. We are proud that the founder of the Archimedes Award, Dr. Andrew Economos, has chosen to make the Next Generation Initiative the home for the Archimedes Award — and delighted that we can now offer this new means to advance the careers of young men and women in our community, in areas of such vital interest to our nation.

To be eligible for the Archimedes Award scholarship, candidates must be graduating high school seniors of Hellenic heritage on track to be first-year university students, who will be pursuing studies in science, technology, engineering or math at a recognized institution of higher learning in the United States.

Award guidelines call for candidates to apply online and complete their applications for the Archimedes Award by March 1, 2015, in order to be considered for a 2015-16 scholarship. Finalists will be selected by an independent committee of university professors and experts with records of experience in STEM education, from the University of California at Davis, Fairfield University, the Stevens Institute of Technology, Old Dominion University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

The Archimedes Award was founded by high-tech entrepreneur Dr. Andrew Economos, a strong supporter of education who is stepping forward to help young Greek Americans who share his passion for science and learning, and encourage Hellenic American students to excel in these fields.
