Free Master’s Degrees for Students Who Agree to Teach in High-Need Public Schools

Albany State University, the historically Black educational institution in Georgia, in partnership with the National Science Foundation, has established the Robert Noyce Teachers Scholarship. Under the program, 12 students will be able to earn a graduate degree from Albany State at no cost to them.

The ASU Noyce Teaching Fellows program is open to graduates with a bachelor’s degree in a STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) field, who have never been employed as a teacher, and are willing to teach in a high-need public school for a minimum of 4 years.

Participants will receive funding for a master’s degree, including tuition, fees, room and board and a $50,000 salary supplement during the first four years of qualifying teaching service.

ASU Noyce Teaching Fellows must complete academic requirements to earn a master’s degree with certification, including certification exams, maintain a 3.0 GPA, and commit to teach in a high-need public school for a minimum of four years.

The academic program leading to a master’s degree will take 15 months.
