Eligibility and Requirements
To apply for the PRNP-Scholarship you must be a Bryn Mawr or Haverford math or science major who has been accepted into and will complete secondary teacher certification in the Bryn Mawr/Haverford Post-Baccalaureate Teacher Certification Program. Candidates for the Bryn Mawr/Haverford Education Program, must work with the Bryn Mawr/Haverford Education Program administrators to determine the exact requirements for admission into that program so there is a clear understanding of what the applicant needs in order to complete the certification program. Candidates applying for the Noyce Scholarship may use the same application materials submitted to the Bryn Mawr/Haverford Education Program for their Noyce application. Successful candidates will demonstrate strong knowledge in math or science and the potential and commitment to excellence in teaching. Scholarship recipients must be U.S. citizens or nationals, or permanent resident aliens.
Awardees must commit to teaching for two years in a high-need school district or the scholarship becomes a repayable loan. Awardees have up to four years to fulfill their Noyce teaching obligation before the scholarship reverts to a loan.
In addition to teaching for two years in a high need school district, Noyce Scholarship Awardees are expected to attend monthly learning community meetings during their student teaching year and the first two years of their in-service teaching. Noyce Scholars will have the opportunity to gain knowledge and skills in the areas of Education for Sustainability and Culturally Relevant Teaching while building their professional network. For the purpose of receiving this support, scholars are encouraged to teach in the Philadelphia region.
