Washington, D.C.— Today, Congresswoman Claudia Tenney (NY-22) announced that SUNY Cortland has been awarded a $1,624,254 federal grant from the National Science Foundation.

Funds from the grant will be used to support three years of the Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship program. The Noyce program provides support for students looking to pursue a career in STEM teaching. The program hosts annual regional conferences, bringing Noyce Teacher Scholars and administrators together in a structured networking atmosphere to find innovate ways to improve STEM teaching and learning strategies in high-need school districts. Noyce Teacher Scholars and administrators from 75 individual Noyce participating institutions will receive financial support through this grant to participate in the teaching conferences across the northeast.

“The Noyce project will be beneficial to both teacher scholars and administrators at SUNY Cortland, providing them with an opportunity to discover innovative ways to develop stronger STEM teaching programs in high-needs districts. I am pleased to help secure this important grant that will advance the knowledge base of STEM teaching while allowing participants to explore challenges and examine successful methods in order to build stronger STEM programs in the future,” said Congresswoman Claudia Tenney.
