Supporting learning assistants who have committed to becoming K-12 math and science teachers.

The LA program supports learning assistants who have committed to becoming K-12 math and science teachers. With the help of the National Science Foundation's Robert Noyce Scholarship Program, the LA program offers learning assistants the opportunity to apply to become Noyce Fellows. Noyce Fellows receive financial support in the amount of $5,000 per semester in the form of forgivable loans. In becoming Noyce Fellows, students understand that they are obligated to teach in a “high-need local education agency” for two years for each year of scholarship assistance.

As a part of the Noyce Scholarship, students have the opportunity to work closely with a STEM faculty mentor. Other benefits include being involved in cutting-edge educational research, mentoring new learning assistants, and working with local K-12 math and science high school teachers.
