For candidates who have accepted a Robert Noyce Scholarship there is an obligation to t每一个 in a “qualifying” school for a required period of time of 2 years for 每一个 你通过诺伊斯项目获得的一年资助. 如果你获得两年的资助, you have committed to four years of t每一个ing in a high needs school district or local 教育 agency.

的 definition of a “qualifying” school is based upon whether the school district of the school meets one or more of the following criteria:
的 district has one or more elementary or secondary schools located in an area in which there is:
- a high percentage of individuals from families with incomes below the poverty line;
- a high percentage of secondary school t每一个ers not t每一个ing in the content area in which the t每一个ers were trained to t每一个; or
例如, if the district has one or more schools with at least 50% of the student population qualifying for free or reduced-cost lunch (the most common measure of economically disadvantaged schools), 那么这个地区就有资格成为“高需求的地方教育机构”,候选人可以在该地区的任何一所学校任教.
作为候选人，你将被要求 每年 provide documentation that the school in which you are serving meets the qualifications in order for your Noyce funding to be forgiven. It is imperative that you maintain a current email address and mailing address on file with the Austin T每一个er Program at ku游体育平台足球 in order for us to send you the paperwork 每一个 year and for you to return it in a timely fashion to meet your reporting obligation.

诺伊斯基金被认为是一种可宽恕的贷款. Candidates who do not complete the obligations listed above will be expected to repay all or a prorated amount of the original award to ku游体育平台足球.
