NOYCE Scholarship and Internship Programs

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 Dr. 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. This grant began in Fall 2010 and will end August 2016, and all scholarships have been awarded.

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

Over 64 Noyce Interns have participated in the Internship program.  Thirty-eight UNC NOYCE Scholars have graduated and are teaching mathematics or science.

 This project is funded by the National Science Foundation under Grant No. 1035333.
