Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program


The GoATeach (Go And Teach) Noyce Scholarship Program recruits and prepares WPI undergraduate students majoring in science, mathematics, and engineering disciplines to join the teaching profession at the secondary level to have high impact on STEM education.

Each Noyce Scholar can receive up to two years of scholarships in the amount of up to $20,000 per year during their junior and senior year. Every Noyce recipient commits to teaching in a high-need school district for two years per year of scholarship received within 8 years of graduation.

Early teaching or Pre-practicum experiences are intentionally designed to integrate the assets of K-12 students and the Worcester Community. Teacher Prep students volunteer or work at Worcester afterschool programs and they also facilitate hands-on STEM activities at our Community Partners.
