Noyce Be-A-JEDI Project

    How to Apply

On October 1, 2022, the University of Rochester’s Warner School of Education, in partnership with the College of Arts & Sciences, was awarded a five-year, $3 million grant from the National Science Foundation to strengthen science and math teaching and learning in high-need, urban schools. The funding will support and offer a new round of Noyce Master Teaching Fellowships (MTF) for secondary mathematics and science teachers to become teacher leaders who impact change in STEM learning for colleagues and students.

The project, “Developing Digitally-Rich Urban Teacher Leaders: Fostering and Sustaining a STEM Culture of Belonging, Access, Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion”—abbreviated as “Be-A-JEDI”—will prepare a cadre of 19 teacher leaders from Rochester, Elmira, Hornell, Jamestown and Salamanca who can serve as agents of change in STEM teaching and learning while incorporating digitally-rich practices in the teaching and learning of science and math.
