Are you a Math or Science major? Have you thought about teaching as a profession but simply aren’t sure?
The Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program provides Math and Science majors with the opportunity to explore teaching through a paid internship prior to application to the School of Education teaching programs. Learn more about this scholarship program by contacting The College of St. Scholastica faculty listed below.

Have you already decided on teaching Math or Science at the Secondary Level?  Apply to the Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program! This program, funded by the National Science Foundation, awards funds to students who have or are pursuing a major in biology, chemistry or mathematics and seeking secondary level teaching licensure. For each year of funding received, recipients commit to two years of teaching in these fields in a high-need school district*. High-need school districts have at least one school in which 50% of students are eligible for free or reduced lunch, 34% or more teachers are teaching out of field, or there is a 15% or higher attrition rate for teachers within the last three years.

Who Should Apply? ~ Fall 2017 Semester Applications are due August 4!

  • Undergraduate students pursuing a major in Biology, Chemistry, or Mathematics and have been accepted to the School of Education
  • Post-baccalaureate students pursuing teaching licensure in the areas of Biology, Chemistry or Mathematics and have been accepted to the Graduate Teaching Licensure program (GTL)

Note: To be accepted applicants must have a GPA of 3.0 and priority will be given to students who demonstrate a financial need and who are underrepresented among science and math teachers, including students of color, females and first-generation college students.
