Noyce Program accepting applications for $43,000 scholarships

The Elon Noyce Scholars Program is accepting applications from current sophomores who are interested in becoming high school science or math teachers.

The Elon Noyce Scholars Program is accepting applications for scholarships which provide $21,900 of funding in the junior year, and $21,900 again in the senior year, for a total of $43,800 in scholarship assistance.

Scholars also receive funding for professional development opportunities during their time at Elon and during the first two years of their teaching. In return for these opportunities, scholarship recipients are required to complete four years of teaching in a U.S. high-need school district. Apply here. The fall semester deadline for applications is Oct. 19.

We are also currently accepting applications for education-related internships for first- or second-year students who are interested in any of the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) disciplines. These internships will include a variety of settings, experiences, and schedules. The total duration of each internship will be 180 hours; interns will be paid $14 per hour, for a total of $2,520, before taxes and withholdings. We have established local internship sites, and there are opportunities for applicants to potentially design their own STEM Education internships near Elon or back home.

Some of last year's interns worked in Tennessee, Virginia and New Jersey. Interns take a one-credit course in the spring to prepare for their internship.  Apply here. The deadline for applications is Oct. 19.
