"Noyce has enabled me to be the most prepared teacher that I could possibly be walking into the classroom my first year. "
Noyce Scholars receive a $20,000 scholarship to complete the year-long MA + Teaching License program at CU Denver's School of Education and Human Development. Once they finish their licensure program, Scholars complete two years of teaching in a high need district.
Noyce Scholars benefit from the additional support and guidance of the Noyce mentor. The Noyce mentor is a master teacher who provides coaching, feedback, and serves as an advcate before and during the teaching internships. The Noyce mentor is an invaluable resource during and beyond the Noyce program.
All Noyce Scholars participate in a weekly STEMinar tailored to their particular needs as new teacher candidates. The STEMinar is designed to supplement other licensure coursework, and often includes observations of master teachers in the metro area. Noyce Scholars may also participate in additional learning opportunities, including the 3-day June Symposium, single day workshops, and national or local conferences.
"Involvement in the Noyce program has created so many opportunities that would not have been possible without the provided personal and financial support." - Anna
