National Science Foundation: Program for Recruiting and
Educating STEM Teachers With Integrated Graduate
Augusta State University proudly hosts a Program for Recruiting and Educating STEM Teachers with Integrated Graduate Enrollment (PRESTIGE) .
PRESTIGE provides a streamlined process for becoming a teacher with certification in a STEM area.
Over three years, six students per year will each be awarded a renewable Robert Noyce scholarship of $14,800 for the first year which will increase by five percent per student each additional year. The scholarship will support the cost of attendance throughout the integrated program's schedule. For each year of funding, PRESTIGE scholars agree to teach two years with preference of employment being given to Burke, Jefferson, McDuffie, and Warren counties.
During the program the scholars will also benefit from having two advisors, one in their STEM area and Dr. Steven Page in the Teacher Education Department. Upon completion of PRESTIGE, each of the 18 scholarship graduates will have obtained a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Arts in Teaching.
