The CU Denver Robert Noyce Scholarship Program promotes secondary teaching as a career for undergraduates and post-baccalaureates majors in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Through a generous grant from the National Science Foundation, the program aims to respond to the critical need for high quality math and science teachers by providing scholarships, research and teaching experiences, and professional development for talented students.
