The Hunter College Noyce Science Scholars Program
The Hunter College Noyce Science Scholars Program, funded by the National Science Foundation, provides tuition scholarship for up to three years to support talented Hunter College and Bronx Community College students majoring in Biology, Chemistry, Geology/Environmental Studies or Physics who would like to become middle or high school science teachers. Noyce Science Scholars enter Hunter's Adolecent Education BA/MA program in their science major, complete their major course requirements, and follow the 26 credit Hunter School of Education coursework that includes fieldwork and student teaching in New York City middle and high schools. Upon graduation, Noyce Science Scholars will have completed their bachelor's degree in their science major and earned an education master's degree that leads to professional certification in teaching science in grades 7-12th. As a requirement to receive the scholarship, Noyce Science Scholars must agree to teach a minimum of two years in a high needs school district in the United States depending on the amount of the scholarship received.
