Over FOURTY Noyce Interns have participated in the Internship program. Spring, Summer and Fall Noyce Intern applications are now being accepted. See below.

As a national leader in the field of teacher education, UNC received a $1.2 million grant award from the National Science Foundation. Under the leadership of Dr. Robert Reinsvold (PI, Biological Sciences), Dr. Valerie Middleton (Co-PI, Teacher Education), and Lori Reinsvold (Program Coordinator, MAST Institute), the Noyce Scholarship and Noyce Internship Programs support and prepare UNC mathematics and science majors who are pursuing careers in secondary teaching to teach in high-need school districts, especially in rural areas. The five-year grant began Fall 2010.

These programs are housed in the MAST Institute.and Dr. Julie Sexton is the Program Evaluator.

What is a Noyce Scholarship?

Highly qualified math and science teachers are in high demand. There are many opportunities for teaching positions. The Noyce Scholarship Program at UNC wants to provide UNC math or science teaching majors with up to $32,000 to complete their science or math teaching major and qualify for these jobs.

This scholarship is for talented UNC science and mathematics majors or science and mathematics professionals who would like to be secondary (grades 6-12) mathematics or science teachers. The grant will award 30 scholarships over five years. The scholarship program is intended for students who have completed their sophomore or junior year, are majoring in a science or mathematics field, enrolled in the secondary teacher education program (PTEP), and would like to pursue a teaching career in mathematics or science.   Scholarships are also given to professionals who have completed their bachelor’s degree in a Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics (STEM) field, accepted in the UNC Post Baccalaureate Teacher Licensure Program in mathematics or science, and would like to pursue a teaching career in mathematics or science.

We have selected over 22 Noyce Scholars. They are completing their science or math degrees, or teachers at high-need schools.


UNC Post-Baccalaureates who become Noyce Post-Bacs, will receive $16,000 for one year. Scholarship recipients are required to complete two years of teaching in a high-need school district for every year of scholarship received.  Note: If the teaching obligation is not met, the scholarship converts to a loan, appreciates interest, and must be repaid in full. 2013 Noyce Post-Bac Application

Due March 31, 2014

What is a Noyce Internship?

The Noyce Internship provides UNC freshman and sophomore science and mathematics majors opportunities to assist K-12 teaching and learning activities. Internships will be available during the academic year and the summer in local schools and educational centers such as the Poudre Learning Center, Las Chicas de Matemáticas, and Frontiers of Science Institute

Noyce Interns will receive $900 for 80 hours of work.  Ideal candidates demonstrate mathematics and science academic success and commitment to support mathematics or science education activities.
