    About the Colorado College Noyce Fellowship

    This program is for students majoring or intending to major in mathematics or sciences with the aspiration to work with youth in the Colorado Springs Community. The ultimate goal of the Fellowship is to inspire intelligent math and science majors to strongly consider teaching as a professional career.  Successful Research Fellows are eligible to apply for Colorado College Noyce Teaching Scholarships during their junior or senior year.  Teaching Scholarships amount to $5,000 (Junior) to $7,500 (Senior) per semester.  There is an additional scholarship of $20,000 for science and math majors who wish to earn their Master of Arts in Teaching from Colorado College after completing their bachelor's degree at CC.

    Eligibility: Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors (for Spring only) can apply in Fall or Spring for a semester long Fellowship, which begins in the semester following acceptance.  A Fellowship is not guaranteed to continue beyond a single semester. However, Fellows in good academic standing my re-apply each semester.  The re-application process is simple - contact for re-application information.  Be sure to check the CCNSP website for up-to-date information and application deadlines.  There will be an opportunity to work with the Collaborative for Community Engagement to find a fitting placement.

    Important Information about the Research Fellowships:

    • $800/semester
    • $4,000/summer
    • Research Fellows will be placed with a community partner sponsored by the Collaborative for Community Engagement (see CCE website for possible placements)

    This application requires one short answer essay.  We recommend you write and save your essay on a separate document, then copy and paste your response. All responses are limited to 500 words. So that you may prepare your answer in advance, the essay question is as follows:

    1. Please explain why you want to work with youth in the community.

    You are also required to submit two references, one from a math or science professor whose class you completed and the second from a CC faculty or staff member or professional educator who can attest to your ability to work with you in the community.
