To learn more about their experiences as Noyce interns, watch this 16-minute-long video of interviews of the interns (video created by Jason Jones, ETSU Media Specialist, Academic Technology Services at ETSU).
The next application deadline for the Noyce intern program will be March 15, 2023 for summer 2023. Application forms will be available shortly.
For the summer of 2023, a number of paid summer internships will be available for ETSU undergraduates majoring in Physics, Chemistry, or Mathematics. This is a 5-week program, in which the student will be working at a local science museum/camp/education facility. As an intern, they will be leading classroom activities, making presentations, doing demonstrations, and other activities. The intern program will run for five weeks, from approximately June 1 to July 17, approximately 40 hours per week. Participants will receive a stipend of $3000. Potential host organizations include the Hands On Discovery Center in Gray Tennessee, the Renaissance Camp on the ETSU campus, the Langston Centre in Downtown Johnson City, Bays Mountain Park in Kingsport Tennessee, the Gray Fossil Site/Natural History Museum in Gray Tennessee, and the Upward Bound program on the ETSU campus. All ETSU students majoring in Chemistry, Physics, and Mathematics are eligible, except for graduating seniors and students who have taken a course through the Education College. This intern program is specifically targeting students who have never taken a course in education. Students must have been enrolled at ETSU during Fall 2022 to be eligible as an intern for summer 2023, and they must be planning to enroll again during Fall 2023 as undergraduates. The deadline for applications for summer 2023 will be March 15, 2023.
Note that the application form will ask for two letters of reference from faculty. Before filling out the application form, ask your references if they are willing to provide a reference for you. After you submit your application, your recommenders will receive automatic requests for letters of reference from the application software. This automatic request will come via email from Dr. Scott Kirkby, so warn your recommenders to expect this email. Since the members of the Noyce team will be reviewing the applications, do not ask anyone on the Noyce team (Dr. Beverly Smith, Dr. Scott Kirkby, Dr. Moin Uddin, or Dr. Jamie Price) for a letter of reference. Instead, ask other faculty members.
