The GEMS project, an NSF-funded Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program, is designed to recruit, prepare, and support new secondary science and mathematics teachers to work in high-needs school districts. This project prioritizes STEM collaboration, diversity, and equity through a range of experiences both on and off campus that equip our scholars to successfully work with diverse learners. Scholars have opportunities to attend the annual national Noyce conference, participate in paid internships at local schools, and learn from world-renowned science and mathematics educators.
Graduates will be eligible for certification at the T-5 level in either secondary mathematics or secondary science disciplines (biology, physics, chemistry, earth/space science).
The project is currently accepting applications with the goal of admitting its first scholars in fall 2020.
