STARR Noyce Scholarships are available to students and science professionals who are applying/accepted to the TEAMS graduate program of ASU's Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College and seeking AZ science teacher certification. Candidates must have an existing degree in a science discipline (biology sciences; chemistry; physics; Earth and space science; and general sciences).
Dr. Julie Luft, Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College and School of Life Sciences, and Dr. Steven Semken, School of Earth and Space Exploration, have been co-PIs on the NSF-funded STARR Noyce Scholarship project since 2008. Since 2009, 43 students have been supported (including 10 paid interns at Arizona Science Center), and 13 have graduated and are currently in the field working as science teachers in high-need schools. Suzanne Cassano is the STARR Noyce Scholarship Specialist dedicated to the project.
