Teach STEM in a high-need district
Teaching in a STEM field allows you to stay connected with the discipline you love while inspiring children to see it as a possible option for their lives and careers. The ISTEP-Noyce program is designed to help increase the number of secondary STEM teachers from diverse backgrounds committed to teaching in high-need schools – to ensure all learners are served.
With Saint Mary’s ISTEP-Noyce grants, you can receive two years of scholarship support.
If you’re interested in teaching STEM and applying for this scholarship, you must major in secondary education.
