NMSU offers students math and science teaching scholarship

New Mexico State University is offering students studying mathematics, science, engineering and technology the opportunity to receive extra help paying their tuition bills in 2009.

NMSU's Institute for Excellence in Math and Science Education in the College of Education is offering the Robert Noyce Scholarship to undergraduate and graduate students. Recipients will receive $5,000 each semester for one year.

"A scholarship like this one, hopefully, will help students decide to become math or science teachers," said Susan Brown, director of STEM Outreach.

To be eligible for the scholarship, students must have completed 90 hours toward a bachelor's degree or a bachelor's degree in science, mathematics, engineering or technology. Students also must have a 2.5 GPA, be committed to pursuing a teaching career in science or math and be enrolled full-time.

NMSU collaborates with the University of New Mexico for the scholarship, which is provided by the National Science Foundation.
