Kennesaw State’s A.T.O.M.S. Center will hold two information sessions Sept. 5 about the I-IMPACT Noyce II Fellowships in conjunction with academic partner, Georgia Tech.

The Noyce Scholarships, which are funded by the National Science Foundation, provide annual stipends of $10,000 over five years for a total of $50,000, as well as well as other funding to each recipient. The first program year is spent in the Master of Arts (MAT) in Teaching Science degree and the next four are spent teaching in a high needs school district in Georgia.

These scholarships are available to career-changers who majored in a science, engineering or technology field — and are considering becoming a middle or high school physics or chemistry teacher in Georgia.

Information sessions about the MAT fellowship programs will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 5, at the A.T.O.M.S. Center. The two session options are 5:30-6:30 p.m. or 6:30-7:30 p.m. A light dinner and refreshments will be served at both sessions.

Please RSVP to iimpact@kennesaw.edu by Aug. 31. Interested students may contact Nancy Overley at iimpact@kennesaw.eduor770-794-7635 for more information.
