Albany State University seeks applicants to receive free graduate degree
The Albany State University (ASU) School of Education is a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant recipient of the Robert Noyce Teachers Scholarship. This grant will allow 12 participants to earn a graduate degree from ASU at no cost to them.
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.
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.
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.
