The Enacting Curriculum Through Engaging Discourse (EnaCTED) Project (2018-2023) is a collaboration of the Wheelock College of Education and Human Development and the College of Arts and Sciences at Boston University and school districts in the Boston area. This program focuses on preparing teachers to design and use high quality mathematics curriculum and discourse-based instruction to support student learning in the secondary mathematics classroom. EnaCTED scholars experience a rich, hands-on, inquiry-based teacher preparation program and work closely with teachers, mathematics educators, mathematicians, and students.
The EnaCTED Project provides 100% tuition scholarships to 33 individuals with backgrounds either in mathematics or related STEM fields to a one-year Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) degree program. The degree program leads to licensure to teach secondary mathematics. Once teaching, EnaCTED scholars will be supported through summer and academic-year workshops, seminars, and mentoring. Scholars become a part of a rich community of mathematics teachers, BU Noyce alumni, teacher educators, and mathematicians. Our program allows you to enrich your mathematics lessons with design, creativity, and innovation! Read about some of our Noyce scholars!

The Boston University Science Education Program is beginning the fourth year of the Physical Science Urban Noyce Scholars (PSUNS) Program (NSF Award DUE-1660681). Project PSUNS offers Noyce Scholarships for applicants who have a physical science background to prepare to be chemistry, physics, or middle school science teachers.
Project PSUNS targets three groups of potential science teachers:
- Graduates in the physical sciences or engineering from all colleges and universities who are committed to social justice and interested in becoming teachers are encouraged to apply to the Project PSUNS MAT Program. If admitted, the PSUNS Scholarship and Boston University’s School of Education provides full tuition for the one-year Masters of Arts in Teaching (MAT) degree program that leads to the Massachusetts teacher’s license.
- Science and engineering professionals interested in making a career change to science teaching, and are committed to social justice, are encouraged to apply to the PSUNS Program. If admitted, the PSUNS Scholarship and Boston University’s School of Education provides full tuition for the one-year Masters of Arts in Teaching (MAT) degree. Alternatively, the PSUNS Scholarship can provide tuition for a part-time program for career changers who choose to earn the Masters in Education degree (EdM) with licensure. This option allows a career changer to continue to work until the semester of student teaching.
- Boston University undergraduate physical science and engineering majors graduating in May, 2019 who are interested in becoming teachers and teaching in a high need district are encouraged to apply for the Noyce Scholarship. Partial scholarship support is available for the senior year. For more information, write to email@example.com.
In return for Noyce Scholarship support, PSUNS Scholars make the commitment that after completing their program at Boston University they will teach science in a high need school district for two years.
