    NSF logo

    The Colorado College Noyce Scholarship Program (CCNSP) is funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF). It provides stipends and scholarships for students in science, mathematics, and technology fields to pursue a Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) degree.

    The Colorado College Noyce Scholarship Program (CCNSP)

    for students majoring or intending to major in mathematics or sciences with the aspiration to become a teacher in a Title I school

    The Colorado College Noyce Scholarship Program is a partnership between the Colorado College, the Catamount Institute, and Colorado Springs School District 11. The main goal of the program is to increase the number of highly-trained K-12 science and mathematics teachers graduating from the Master of Arts in Teaching program who teach in high-needs schools. CCNSP provides scholarships and research fellowships for Colorado College students in STEM fields who want to become teachers.

    • If you are a freshman, sophomore, or junior, we have research fellowships available each semester and summer beginning in Spring 2016. Fellowships can continue in the summer and eventually lead to teaching scholarships during your junior and senior year.
    • If you are a junior interested in teaching, we have one $5,000 scholarship available for next spring (spring 2016), with potential for another $15,000 your senior year! 
    • If you are a senior, we have five $20,000 scholarships available for the 2016-17 Master of Arts in Teaching Program!

    If you decide to enter the Master of Arts in Teaching Program, there are additional scholarships available. In short, a CCNSP Teaching Scholar could earn up to $45,000 in scholarships plus paid internships!
