Urban Mathematics and Science Teacher Collaborative (Noyce)

Noyce teaching fellows gather in a classroom

Tufts University's Department of Education is the proud recipient of a generous Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program grant through the National Science Foundation. The grant has supported math and science teachers interested in pursuing their Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) degree at Tufts as part of the Urban Mathematics and Science Teacher Collaborative (grades 1-12).

The program has funded nine teaching fellows with undergraduate degrees in the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) disciplines and who have demonstrated a commitment to teaching young people in high-needs school districts for at least four years after graduation. Fellows in the program spent 12 months as students in Tufts' intensive M.A.T. teacher preparation program, working with Tufts faculty to focus on improving mathematics and science teaching and learning in grades 1-12. The fellows are now involved in ongoing mentoring provided by the program.
