NEW NSF Robert Noyce Mathematics Teacher Preparation Scholarship

The Fordham University Graduate School of Education is pleased to announce the NEW NSF Robert Noyce Mathematics Teacher Preparation Scholarship Program!  This unique Master of Science in Teaching (M.S.T.) program is available to prospective students interested in initial teacher certification in Adolescence (Grades 7-12) Mathematics. 

Combining program coursework and field-based teaching experiences, along with collaborative lesson planning through a partnership between GSE, the Fordham Mathematics Department, and New York City public schools (including schools within GSE's Partnership Support Organization/ Children First Network), the Noyce Scholarship program provides recipients* with hands-on, dynamic experience in the high-need area of high school mathematics education.

The two-year scholarship funded** program provides the following:
  • $42,000 tuition scholarship;
  • New York State initial certification to teach grades 7-12 mathematics (upon successful completion of the program and the passing of all required NYS exams);
  • A specialized summer teaching program;
  • Observation and participation in three Lesson Studies; and
  • Two years of mentoring and support with established educators.
GSE is currently accepting applications for the program beginning in Fall 2013!  Please visit our website for further information and updates.

To assist prospective students and applicants in finding out more about this exceptional learning experience, the Office of Admissions will be holding several Information Sessions:
