The 2020 Scholar Application

Welcome to the 2019-2020 SCS Noonan Scholars Application!

The application is now closed – thank you for your interest.

SCS Noonan is searching for a group of exceptional students to become our Class of 2021 SCS Noonan Scholars. We’re excited that you have chosen to apply and our team is here to support you through the application process.

The SCS Noonan Scholars Program is FREE to admitted students! Students who are selected as SCS Noonan Scholars benefit from:

  • A six-week, residential Summer Academy following their junior year and senior year of high school. At Summer Academy, Scholars take math and writing courses taught by college professors, in addition to ongoing support around the college application and college transition process. All costs of Summer Academy, including housing, meals, and travel to Amherst College, are covered by SCS Noonan Scholars.
  • A $500 stipend each summer that they participate in Summer Academy, and a $1000 stipend each year of college.
  • A laptop that is theirs to keep at the end of the 2020 Summer Academy.
  • Ongoing individual support, resources, and programming focused on applying to college, and succeeding in college and in career.

We ask that SCS Noonan Scholars commit to:

  • The REQUIRED six-week residential Summer Academy in the summer of 2020 AND in the summer of 2021. The 2020 Summer Academy will take place at Amherst College in Amherst, Massachusetts.
    • Summer Academy runs from late-June through early-August
    • Students will be expected to be present for the entirety of the six-week program in both summers 2020 and 2021
  • Ongoing communication and responsiveness with SCS Noonan Scholars staff and representatives, including the College Access Manager, College Success Manager, Career Coach, and a mentor, who will ensure that the Scholar is supported in the college application process, the college transition process, and in their career preparation.
