Please note the following:
An individual cannot be supported with funding from both a U.S. Department of Education (USDoEd) TEACH Grant and the Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship program. Each program, the Noyce program and the TEACH Grant program, is intended to increase the number of well-prepared certified individuals teaching in high-need school districts (for Noyce) and in schools serving low-income students (for TEACH grant). If a student received support from both, then the intention to increase the number of certified teachers would fall short of what the separate programs might generate. Moreover, an individual receiving scholarship or stipend support through the NSF Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship program may receive a maximum of the cost of attendance; therefore, if Noyce is providing for this, then with the addition of support from the TEACH Grant, Noyce recipients would then be receiving more than the cost of attendance. In addition, as there is a service requirement associated with both the Noyce program and the TEACH Grant, it would not appear to be reasonable for the same person to receive both, as they could not meet their service requirement for each program concurrently. Finally, the length of the service requirement for the two programs differs, with Noyce providing a greater funding level for each year and expecting 2 years of service for each year of scholarship or stipend support (completed within 8 years from graduation date), while the TEACH grant requires 4 years of service (also within 8 years). These commitments are not able to be served concurrently.
