Wyoming Interns to Teacher Scholars (WITS)

Program at the University of Wyoming 

Wyoming Interns to Teacher Scholars (WITS) is a Robert Noyce Scholarship program targeting STEM undergraduates, graduates, and professionals interested in obtaining a K-6 elementary teaching certificate.  The Robert Noyce Scholarship program at UW has two components:

1. WITS Scholars: (Application deadline March 1, 2017.)
  • Scholarships in the amount of $12,000 will cover tuition, room and board, and a tablet for transfer students and UW students who are enrolled as dual majors in mathematics, biology, chemistry, geology, or computer science and elementary education. The program leads to certification as an elementary teacher in Wyoming. Recipients must teach two years in a Title-I school district for each year of scholarship support. 

2. WITS Internships: (Application deadline April 1, 2017)
  • Two-week paid summer internships for UW students with a minimum of 30 credit hours to encourage elementary teaching as a career. These interns will be placed in summer camps such as the Teton Science Schools summer camp, Lander Lights On After School Program or Sinks Canyon State Park. A stipend up to $1,000 will be paid for participating in the internship.
