The USF College of Education and the College of Arts and Sciences are thrilled to
announce an opportunity for Hillsborough County Public School teachers. With funding
from the National Science Foundation, the Noyce Master Teacher Fellowship provides
an opportunity for 20 (two cohorts of 10) STEM teachers working in grades 6-12 to
obtain their M.Ed. degree during the first year of participation in the program. Each
Fellow will receive an annual salary supplement in exchange for an additional four
years of teaching in the district.

The project addresses a national interest by providing advanced education and authentic,
action-oriented, training to support the development of STEM Master Teacher Fellows.
The project’s objective is to develop grades 6-12 STEM teachers’ knowledge, confidence,
and leadership skills to provide mechatronics-based lessons that include a wide range
of experiential education activities to appeal to a diverse student population in
their classrooms and after-school programs; thereby broadening participation in STEM.
