MSU College of Education, Health and Human Development’s Science Math Resource Center and Education Department in collaboration with the College of Letters and Science’s Master of Science in Science Education (MSSE) Program and Physics Department, and the Norm Asbjornson College of Engineering’s Chemical & Biological Engineering Department will offer Master Teaching Fellowships to 26 experienced and exemplary STEM teacher leaders from high-need school districts, including Arlee, Browning, Cut Bank, Lame Deer, Northern Cheyenne Tribal, Saint Labre, and Superior Schools, situated in rural and American Indian communities across Montana through National Science Foundation Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program’s RAISE STEM Leaders project.

Awarded NSF Noyce Master Teaching Fellows (MTFs) will: 

  • Receive over $10,000 stipends per year up to five years.
  • Participate in a weeklong STEM Summer Institute and STEM Leadership Academy every summer on the MSU campus.
  • Attend monthly networking events and STEM professional development conferences, including the MFPE Educator Conference, either online or onsite during the school semesters.

In this Noyce Master Teaching Fellowships program, MTFs will strengthen their leadership competence in STEM education, integrate funds of knowledge and culturally responsive and sustaining pedagogy into STEM curriculum and instruction, and lead in designing and facilitating formal and informal STEM activities within their schools and communities to elevate student attitudes, behaviors, and achievements in STEM.
