Here is a great opportunity for homeschool graduates who are interested in teaching science in middle or high school. For a few years now, the number of students majoring in science and mathematics in college has been far short of the national need for teachers in those disciplines. Arizona State University (all campuses) and the Arizona Science Center have partnered to create paid internships to encourage students to major in the sciences with a goal toward teaching.
The Robert Noyce Scholarship Program, an outgrowth ofthe National Science Foundation Authorization Act of 2010 and the Science Teachers for Arizona Recruitment and Retention (STARR), will provide 10 stipends of $1000 each for applicants who are currently enrolled at one of the Arizona State University campuses in a science education program.
Candidates applying for the scholarships must be:
- U.S. citizens or nationals
- In the last two years of an ASU baccalaureate degree or in the TEAMS graduate program leading to AZ teacher certification within the following disciplines: biology sciences; chemistry; physics; Earth and space science; and general sciences
