The Robert Noyce Scholarship program, funded by the National Science
Foundation, is offered with the intent of increasing the number of K-12
mathematics and science teachers working in high-need urban or rural
school districts. The Noyce Scholarships at Buffalo State are available
to undergraduate science and mathematics majors in their senior and/or
internship year(s) and to science and/or mathematics post-BA students
during their internship year.
New York State Math & Science Teaching Incentive Scholarships are
being offered to encourage students to pursue careers as secondary math
and science teachers (grades 7-12).

Connect with Science is a program
designed to promote opportunities in science, technology, engineering,
and mathematics (STEM). The program’s goal is to increase the number of
students completing their science, technology, engineering and
mathematics degree. We acknowledge the support provided by the
National Science Foundation’s Science, Technology, Engineering, and
Mathematics Talent Expansion Program under grant DUE-0431517.

Through the College Cost Reduction and Access Act of 2007, Congress
created the Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher
Education (TEACH) Grant Program that provides grants of up to $4,000
per year to students who intend to teach in a public or private
elementary or secondary school that serves students from low-income
families. If, after reading all of the information on this fact sheet,
you are interested in learning more about the TEACH Grant Program, you
should contact the financial aid office at the college where you will
be enrolled starting with the 2008-2009 school year.
URGE to Compute provides apprenticeships worth $10,000 to each of 12
students annually to conduct research of a computational nature in
mathematics and the mathematical sciences. URGE stands for
Undergraduate Research Group Experiences, and it is the implementation
in Buffalo of the National Science Foundation's CSUMS program. It is a
collaboration of the UB and Buffalo State Mathematics Departments, the
UB Physics Department, the UB Center for Computational Research, and
the Hauptman Woodward Medical Research Institute.
