SUMMARY OF AMENDMENTS MADE IN ORDER

1. Gordon (TN):
Manager's Amendment. 
The amendment establishes an additional type of award under NSF’s Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship program to recruit and train science, math and engineering professionals who are interested in becoming science or math teachers.  The awards are for institutions of higher education that enter into partnerships with private sector entities and state or local government educational organizations.  The awards support the development of specialized pedagogy courses for training students to teach science or math and provide for stipends of up to $10,000 per year for participants in the program.  In exchange for the stipend, the participants are obligated to teach in a secondary school for four years.  As a condition for receiving the NSF grant, the partnership must provide salary supplements, from non-Federal sources, to the graduates of the program during the period of their teaching commitment.   (10 minutes)

2. Gordon (TN):
The amendment requires NSF, in making awards under the Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship program, to ensure that the recipients are from a variety of types of academic institutions, including Minority Serving Institutions, and requires NSF to establish and maintain a clearinghouse of information on teaching opportunities in high-need school systems for use by individuals who participate in the Noyce program and consequently have an obligation to teach for a prescribed period of time.   (10 minutes)
