The Robert C. Noyce Scholarship Program nationally was created to respond to the critical shortage of K-12 teachers of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). The program seeks to encourage talented STEM students and professionals to pursue teaching careers in our nation's schools.
Here at Wittenberg, a grant was received in the Fall of 2010, to encourage math and science majors to pursue a career at the secondary level in high-need school districts. Our program is entitled: "Preparing Talented STEM Majors to Serve in High Need Secondary Schools." The intent is to sponsor 16 awards over a five-year period averaging $25,000 per year to be awarded to juniors and seniors. Read more about the history of Wittenberg and the Noyce Grant at this link.
Accredited licensure programs for the following subject areas are available at Wittenberg. Links to our departments are included.
In Ohio, these subject areas correlate to the following Adolescent-Young Adult (7-12) licensure areas. Links below present the courses necessary to complete for Wittenberg's approved teacher licensure program in each of the fields.
