Interested in being a science teacher? Check out the Noyce Scholarship programs

The Noyce Scholarship programs provides scholarships to BSMS students in Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Geological Sciences, and Environmental Sciences who are interested in K12 teaching.  While our Noyce program is in its final year, we still have some funds available for scholarships.

While the NSF grant expires in September, we can provide some scholarship fund to such students in the spring and summer.  Students should note, however, that these funds come with commitments, and funds would need to be repaid if those commitments are not met.

Group counseling can be even MORE effective than one-on-one counseling for helping students with some problems. Groups of 5-8 students and 1-2 counselors provide support and feedback in ways that many students find really helpful! Group counseling can help students work on self-esteem, assertiveness, creating deeper relationships, healthier conflict, and so much more. See attached list of CAPS & SACS groups, then call us to learn more!




Wednesdays, 1:30-3:00pm

A free, confidential, all gender support group for students who are questioning the health of a relationship (friendship, romantic or family) and/or recognizing patterns of power and control within. Call (812)855-5711 to schedule a “CAPS Now” appointment to learn more about this group!
