Scholarship Information

Collaborating with area schools, the Noyce Scholarship Project is recruiting current and incoming undergraduate students to the Dordt STEM and education programs by providing support in the form of educational outreach opportunities for undergraduates in their first two years and $14,500 tuition scholarships during their third and fourth years. In return for these scholarships, recipients commit to teaching in a high-need school upon graduation for a period of two to four years, in accordance with scholarship guidelines. The long-term goal of the Noyce Project is to graduate more teachers with strong backgrounds in STEM fields who are committed to teaching in high-need schools.
