UCSC MA/Credential Specific Support:

Cal Teach offers two competitive scholarships to its interns who enroll in UCSC’s Master's/Credential Program. Plan ahead for these opportunities. They have pre-requisites that you should have completed by the time you apply for them. To apply you must submit only one application for both scholarships (Noyce Teacher's Scholars Program and Bruce Fellowship Program).

Cal Teach/Noyce Scholarship Application Material

The application process consists of three main events: a Meet the Partner School District Information Session, typically scheduled in late fall before the application deadline; submission of the application, and required interviews with school districts representatives, scheduled on a single day within a few weeks of the application deadline. Specific dates for the current application period are below. 

A strong applicant will have completed the CBEST (or equivalency) and CSET (if no Subject Matter Waiver) before applying and demonstrate commitment to teaching in a high-need school.

Scholarship candidates are informed of their selection in the offer of admission and graduate support from the UCSC Graduate Division, usually in March. Scholar/Fellow expectations and payment details are provided by Cal Teach.
