Philadelphia Regional Noyce Partnership Teacher Scholarship

The Philadelphia Regional Noyce Partnership–Scholarship (PRNP-S) at Arcadia University is an award to three or four students each year between 2019 and 2022. It is funded through a National Science Foundation grant, which was awarded to PRNP to fund scholarships in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) teaching programs at Arcadia University, Saint Joseph’s University, Temple University, La Salle University, and Bryn Mawr College. 

Eligibility

To apply for a $15,000 PRNP-S, a student must be an Arcadia Math or Science major who will complete secondary teacher certification in the University’s Five-Year Secondary Education Program. Successful candidates will demonstrate strong knowledge in math or science and the potential for and commitment to excellence in teaching. Scholarship recipients must be U.S. citizens or nationals or permanent resident aliens.

Requirements

Please note PRNP-S is contingent upon acceptance into Arcadia's Secondary Education program. There is a separate application for the Five-Year Secondary Education Program. Please contact Dr. Kim Dean, chair of Education, for the application requirements.

Recipients must commit to teaching for two years in a high-need school district, or the scholarship becomes a repayable loan. Recipients have up to four years to fulfill their Noyce teaching obligation before the scholarship reverts to a loan.
