We invite all first and second year STEM students to apply.  You do not need experience teaching, nor do you need to be interested in teaching as a career.  A heart for service and your subject is all you need! The 2016 internship will run 6/6-8/5, with a 6/5 move-in.  For more information and to apply please visit: http://www.xavier.edu/noyce/Noyce-Summer-Internship1.cfm

We have expanded our internship opportunities this year! About half our interns will work with Dr. Gary Lewandowski and Dr. Carla Gerberry in running an on campus summer camp. You will assist in planning activities, supervising high school student staff, supervising middle school participants, and help plan programming to help the high school staff learn more about college life, applying for college, and such.  

Four to six interns will be selected to spend nine weeks with Breakthrough Cincinnati. Those interested is this amazing Breakthrough experience must also apply directly to Breakthrough Cincinnati.  Those interested in only the Xavier College Bound Camps can apply at www.xavier.edu/noyce.

First and second year students with a passion for service are strongly encouraged to apply. The first week of the program will include a STEM-teaching boot camp. Students will live on the Xavier University campus, receiving room and board (including $750 food stipend) as well as a $400/week stipend. During the internship, students will keep journals and meet with mentors to reflect upon their experiences. Faculty and staff from the STEM departments, education department and Community Building Institute will work with students to expand their knowledge and interest in teaching inner-city/at-risk students."

The application deadline is February 26, 2016.
