STEM Digital Village Supports Noyce



Langston University's Robert Noyce STEM Teacher Scholarship Program Grant


Recruiting, Developing, and Retaining Tomorrow’s Outstanding STEM Teachers for Oklahoma





During Fall 2014, Langston University (LU) was awarded a 5-year Phase I NSF Noyce STEM Teacher Scholarship  grant aimed at increasing the numbers of qualified  STEM teachers who will teach in high need school districts. LU collaborated with a local Community College, Oklahoma City Community College, in an effort to provide a pipeline from Junior College to a 4-year institution as a recruiting resource for STEM teachers.



The problem that the grant seeks to solve is a shortage of STEM teachers throughout the nation, including Oklahoma.  The problem is exacerbated because  too few students select STEM as a college major; those who do select these majors generally choose to pursue advanced degrees and ultimately choose a STEM career that is more lucrative than teaching.


LU chose to pursue a solution to this problem based on its earlier successes producing accomplished STEM scholars during previous NSF programs, and its history of producing teachers.




  • Produce 24 new STEM secondary teachers over a 5-year period who will teach in high-need school districts.
  • Retain 75% of the cohort group through their commitment period. •Institutionalize  process.




Noyce Scholarship of up to $10,000 is augmented by a number of additional funding sources available at LU:


  • LU Honors scholarships
  • American Chemical Society (ACS) Hach  scholarships
  • Other LU funding sources
