Program Overview

The Noyce Teacher Scholarship is a five-year program focused on attracting community service-oriented science, technology and mathematics (STEM) students to careers in high school teaching.

Noyce Scholarships

The Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program offers several starting points for pursuing teacher licensure. 

Students can apply for 3rd/4th year scholarships, 4th/5th year scholarships, or those in their senior year (or beyond) can apply for a one year graduate stipend. Yearly cohorts of five students will be selected each spring for the undergraduate scholarship. Two graduate stipends will be awarded each spring as well.

This flexibility allows students who choose to pursue licensure multiple pathways into the Noyce program.

Tutoring Opportunities

Science, mathematics and computer science students are invited to participate in tutoring opportunities with our neighboring schools and community organizations. 

Noyce Summer Internships

First and second year students can apply for the Noyce Summer Internship program. This nine-week residential program provides room and board along with a stipend. The program includes a  week-long 'boot camp' followed by eight weeks participating in teaching activities located at one of our community partners, along with mentoring and reflection.

Post-licensure Support

Xavier will continue to support the Noyce Scholars cohorts for their first three years of teaching.  Scholars will participate in Xavier's New Teacher Academy, receive funds for classroom supplies, participate in a mentoring program, and will have community support through both online contact and semi-annual cohort dinners.
