Partnership with the University of Kentucky

In this Noyce Track-1 project, we have partnered with University of Kentucky (UK). Dr. Margaret Mohr-Schroeder (Professor and Senior Associate Dean of Academic Programs at UK) runs a Noyce Track-1 program. Along with UK’s Noyce Scholars, this collaborative partnership will offer summer STEM programming to Bellarmine’s NKSP Scholars that support and develop professional Mathematics and Science Educators. This collaborative partnership will also streamline efforts to support all Noyce Scholars in Kentucky (both at UK and BU), especially through induction. UK will offer summer STEM offerings for teacher development and support the development of professional networks of Noyce Scholars in Kentucky.

NKSP Scholars who are in the post-baccalaureate MAT year in summer prior to certification for the Early Entry MAT program or in the summer after graduation, prior to certification of the Mathematics Undergraduate Certification pathway or in the summer of the 1st year of the Traditional MAT program will take part in a one-week paid Professional Development workshop in summer focused on Culturally Responsive Teaching (CRT) at the University of Kentucky for Noyce scholars. Each Noyce intern will receive $725 for this internship at UK - a stipend of $500 and $225 as subsistence towards housing, meal and transportation expenses.
