What does it mean to be a Noyce Scholar?

  • The pre-application phase of the program begins in your junior year. You’ll take an early field experience course in which you observe and participate in a middle-school classroom; you’ll also take a linking course in which you connect ideas from your undergraduate math and physics classes to concepts that you’ll teach in middle and high school.
  • Scholarship applications are due in the spring semester.
  • In your senior year, you will complete a math or physics-related major, take education courses, spend a week at Frederick Douglass Academy in New York City, and work in tutoring experiences both on- and off-campus.
  • Scholars enroll in IC’s MAT program, in which you tutor high school students and spend a semester teaching in middle and high schools under the guidance of IC faculty and mentor teachers.
  • After you graduate, you will teach for four years in a high-need school district. You’ll return to IC during the summers for workshops and conferences, and IC faculty will visit you at your own school.
