The Application Process

As a Noyce Scholarship program, TEAMS seeks exceptional mathematics and science majors to pursue high school teacher licensure.  To apply for the program, applicants must: 

  • Complete and submit an application,  (click to access the Google form for applying)
  • Provide at least three references via the application form who can describe the candidate's academic abilities, dispositions toward teaching, and professionalism, and
  • Complete a brief interview with project faculty if selected as a finalist.   Interviews are expected to take place in mid to late April. 

Application materials for fall 2018 or spring 2019 are due no later than April 29, 2018.  Announcements for recipients will be made by May 20.  

Applicants should ensure that they meet minimum requirements for the program, including that they be mathematics or science majors or graduates from a mathematics or science degree (preferably Biology, Chemistry, Geology, Mathematics, or Physics), have a minimum gpa of 2.7, and be a US citizen, national, or alien admitted as a refugee.  Students must be admitted into an appropriate licensure program for spring 2018 to receive funds for that semester.  Students admitted into programs after spring 2018 will be evaluated at the appropriate time. 

Additional Information for Applicants

Applicants will be reviewed based on their demonstration of academic ability and propensity for teaching as well as their commitment to teaching in rural, high needs schools.  

Receipt of a Noyce Scholarship through the TEAMS program requires that recipients maintain a minimum overall and content major gpa of 2.7 in coursework, make adequate progress in both coursework and licensure requirements, and complete all necessary assignments for licensure.  An additional but briefer application will be required each year to ensure adequate progress is being made in the program.
