The Kent State University Robert Noyce Summer Internship Program is available to freshman and sophomore math or science majors. Noyce interns will be paid $450 per week for four weeks in June-July 2013 depending on students’ schedule and site.

Interns can still take summer courses, and internship schedules can be worked around students’ class schedules. This is the first phase of the service learning project of the Noyce Scholarship Program. Future scholarships for graduate studies may be available.
