NOYCE Scholarship Program
The CSUEB Noyce Scholarship Program is designed to increase the number of qualified math and science teachers obtaining their credential at CSUEB and going on to serve at high needs schools. Noyce Scholarships will be used to attract academically successful community college transfers, senior mathematics and science majors and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) professionals to become highly effective teachers in urban school districts. Each scholar will be supported throughout the four quarters of the credential program. Seniors receiving the Noyce Scholarship can be supported for as many as three quarters in their senior year. The award is $3000 per quarter and all scholarship recipients will be required to teach at a high needs school for every year of support.
The goals of this program are to increase the number of mathematics and science majors entering the teaching profession through early recruitment strategies, to strengthen the preparation and mentoring that these teachers receive and to provide a network of interpersonal and professional support that sustains their commitment to a career in teaching.
Note: Application Deadline is September 25, 2014.
