Launch your career in education. 
Get a stipend and personalized support along the way.

Arizona needs qualified teachers in the STEM areas — science, technology, engineering and mathematics. If you have a bachelor’s degree in any of the STEM fields, you could already be on your way to an education career.

ASU and the Tolleson and Pendergast elementary school districts are partners in the Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program, recruiting qualified candidates for this high-demand field. Find out how you can start a fulfilling career and get financial and professional support along the way.

As an ASU Noyce Scholar, you can:

  • Receive a one-year living wage stipend of $27,500

  • Earn a Master of Education degree in Elementary Education leading to your Arizona teacher certification

  • Get three years of personalized professional support as you begin your career as an in-demand teacher of middle school math or science

Classes begin May 2018 and funding is limited. Apply today!


  • Attend daytime classes and clinical experiences — including student teaching — all in the Tolleson or Pendergast districts

  • After graduation, teach math or science for two years in a Title 1 (high-needs) school, grades 5–8


  • You’re eligible if you have a bachelor’s degree in math, science, engineering or computer science/technology, and are a U.S. citizen.

  • You will also need to be an admitted student to the MEd in Elementary Education program at Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College, but that admittance is not required in order to apply for the Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program. You can apply for the program and to ASU simultaneously, so don’t wait.

  • Are you an Arizona resident? You may also qualify for the Arizona Teachers Academy, which would provide additional financial aid and leadership development.
