Robert Noyce Scholarship

Our task was to create a first time website for the Robert Noyce Scholarship that appeals to potential scholarship applicants and current scholars at the graduate and undergraduate level. This site will be used by community college counselors and professors, SPU counselors and professors, and students looking for financial aid.

The Robert Noyce Scholarship program, named for the co-inventor of the semiconductor and co-founder of Intel, is a partnership grant from the National Science Foundation for science, engineering, technology, and mathematics (STEM) majors.

The program aims to meet the growing local and national need for better-qualified teaching professionals in the STEM fields. The program also seeks to channel these teachers into local districts with high-need students.

Student Academic Services

Well we did it! 43 hours of design work later, we finally launched a new SAS website. This is the first time the site has been enhanced since it launched last decade, or at least that is my impression. New features include a very enhanced FAQ called "Get Answers" which breaks down the hundreds of questions prospective students and current students have into simple categories and then has a very clean and custom Spry Ajax effect of an accordion answers.

The dean of the School of Theology, had the following to say:

“This is a great site, and I want to thank you for the excellent way in which you listened to our needs and executed it in a timely fashion -- given all of the other tasks that you have before you! Please give our deep appreciation to your entire staff. It is a blessing to have such tremendous folks to work with.”
