​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Science Teacher Scholars Program
Scholarship applications are due August 30. Please use last year's application.

Through its Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program, NSF provides funding to institutions for scholarships and programmatic support to recruit and prepare science majors to become K-12 teachers. The Science Teacher Scholars program seeks to increase the number of K-12 teachers with science content knowledge to teach in schools with a diverse population of students.

The five-year grant was obtained by Bridgewater in partnership with Massasoit Community College and four public school districts – Brockton, Fall River, Randolph and Freetown-Lakeville.

Scholarships will be awarded to support the final two years of 40 BSU science majors who decide to enroll in an education licensure program. The scholarships are valued at $10,000 for each year, fully covering tuition, fees and books for the academic year.

Twelve of the scholarships will be specifically for science majors seeking to become elementary education teachers and 28 for secondary education. The program will also fund eight paid summer internships at either BSU or Massasoit for first and second-year science majors.

“As an institution, we are proud to receive another significant grant from the National Science Foundation,” said Dr. Dana Mohler-Faria, president of BSU, “As the largest educator of science and mathematics teachers in the commonwealth, the Science Teacher Scholars program will continue to support a core mission of the university since its founding – to expertly prepare those aspiring to become educators.”
