Applying for the Project BoNUSS Noyce Scholarship for Master of Arts (MAT) in Teaching Program or Undergraduate Senior Year Scholarship

Project BoNUSS MAT Program in Science Education

Project BoNUSS Noyce Scholars receive full scholarship support for a 42 credit MAT Program through a combination of the Robert Noyce Scholarship and a scholarship from Boston University. These two scholarships are awarded as a package for successful applicants for the Noyce Scholarship. The program begins in summer and ends the following May. Successful completion of this program earns the MAT in Science Education and recommendation for Initial Licensure to teach science.

Requirements and application process for the Project BoNUSS MAT Program:

  • An undergraduate or graduate degree in a science discipline completed before the start oft the summer program courses.
  • Demonstration of United States citizenship or permanent alien residency.
  • Completion of an application to the Boston University School of Education (SED) MAT Program and acceptance into the MAT Program.
  • Completion of the application for the Project BoNUSS Noyce Scholarship. Do not edit this in your web browser—download it to your computer and edit it there. This is a competitive scholarship. Applicants are judged by a committee. Two letters of support are requested that testify to the applicant’s suitability to teach in a high need district. These letters of support may also be used for the MAT Program application.

Please address questions about the application process to Professor Peter Garik (garik@bu.edu).
