I am a software engineer, and my company has decided to open-source my project. Yaaay! Please help us find the right open source license.

We'd like to release the source code for non-commercial use. The project is scientific in nature, and we're mostly imagining students, researchers, and research institutions being interested in it. We want to open-source the project for the good of humanity. However, we do not want our competitors or anyone else to use this code to make money. Is there a ready-made open-source license that fits our needs?
