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. Read more at   Noyce Program Background




During the term of LU's Noyce STEM Teacher Scholarship program (2014-2019) there have been 25 participants, all of whom are STEM majors.   Seven are currently teaching science at the secondary education level, some have completed their Academic course curriculum and are in the process of obtaining teacher certification, and the remainder are still pursuing a B.S. degree at LU. Only one officially dropped out of the program.



At the very beginning of the program, there were several senior STEM majors who decided to accept entry to advanced degree programs rather than become teachers. They are positioned to receive a PhD degree within the next year.


We couldn't be more proud of the students who have completed, or are in the process of completing, this program.  Their knowledge and skill are already being recognized in classrooms throughout Oklahoma. Our LU team remains in contact with our program graduates, and will continue to support their development as they strive to achieve Master STEM teacher status.
