Noyce Grant

Students who begin their education at Northeast Iowa Community College (NICC) and transfer to Upper Iowa University (UIU) to major in All Science with Teacher Certification are eligible for scholarships from $10,000-$22,000 per year.

Upper Iowa University was recently awarded a $1.6 million grant by the National Science Foundation and the Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program. The "Mentoring Awesome Science Teacher Education Recruits" (MASTER) project will prepare 15 Upper Iowa University All Science majors to teach science in high-poverty, high-need, and rural schools in Iowa.

In partnership with UIU, NICC transfer students qualify for the Noyce Grant for their junior and senior years at UIU.
