How To Apply to Project BoNUSS

Project BoNUSS Stipends for the 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.

  • 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. Within the MAT you should also complete
    • The application for the Project BoNUSS Noyce Scholarship. This is a competitive scholarship. Applicants are judged by a committee.
