The comprehensive scholarship program will provide funding for 12 students over three years. At the completion of the program, USD Noyce Scholars will have earned either their Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) or Master of Education (MED) degrees.
The program will be coordinated by Eric Page , Ph.D. (Physics), Lisa Baird, Ph.D. (Biology), Jane Friedman, Ph.D. (Mathematics), Jeremy Kua, Ph.D. (Chemistry and Biochemistry), and Joi Spencer, Ph.D. (SOLES).
