Noyce Scholars Make Summer Trip to DC
Leo Bruederle, associate professor of integrative biology, and Diana White, assistant professor of mathematical and statistical sciences, accompanied six NSF Noyce Scholars to the Eighth Annual NSF Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program Conference held in Washington, DC in late May. The conference provided opportunities for faculty representatives from across the country to share programmatic ideas related to recruiting, retention, scholar support, and educational programs. Similarly, the Noyce scholars benefited from attending hands-on sessions, presenting posters, and networking with the larger community of Noyce scholars across the country. CU Denver currently has two grants from the NSF Robert Noyce Teacher Preparation Program totaling over $2 million. Funding provide scholarships, stipends, and programmatic support to recruit and prepare STEM majors at CU Denver to become K-12 teachers.
