Graduate STEM Career Change Programs

Graduate students of Adolescent Education who have earned a bachelor’s degree with a STEM major are eligible to apply for a National Science Foundation Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program stipend recipient award. The stipend award amounts to $20,000 toward the academic year when student teaching takes place, which is the last year in the program.

All students who have earned a bachelor’s degree with a major in biology or chemistry must take EDU 7292. All students who have earned a bachelor’s degree with a major in mathematics must take EDU 7293. If awarded, stipend recipients must take a minimum of 15 credits in the year of the award.

Graduate students of Childhood Education who have earned a bachelor’s degree with a STEM major are also eligible to apply. Like the Adolescent Education program, those enrolled in Childhood Education who are accepted as stipend recipients will receive a stipend award that amounts to $20,000 toward the academic year when student teaching takes place, which is the last year in the program. If awarded, stipend recipients must take a minimum of 15 credits in the year of the award.
