The Robert Noyce Scholarship program is a National Science Foundation (NSF) funded program (DUE-0934944) that provides scholarships to students who are committed to teaching science or mathematics in high need school districts upon the completion of a single subject credential program. The main goal of the program is to increase the number of teachers with strong science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) content knowledge in high need school districts. The CSUB Noyce Scholarship Program will offer scholarship support for up to two academic years.
Dr. Dirk Baron (Physical Sciences Advisor), Dr. Andreas Gebauer (Program Director, Physical Sciences Advisor); Dr. Kamel Haddad (Mathematics Advisor); Dr. Carl Kloock (Life Sciences Advisor); Dr. Natalie Tran (Teacher Education Advisor).
Scholarships will be awarded each academic year from 2009-2010 through 2013-2014 and can be received by a recipient for up to two years, as shown below.
|Yearly Scholarship Amount||Total Scholarship Amount||Teaching Commitment|
|Year 1||$10,000||$10,000||2 years|
|Year 2||$10,000||$20,000||4 years|
Scholarship recipients are required to teach two-years at ANY school in a high- need school district for each year of scholarship accepted. The program will assist scholarship recipients in finding jobs in these districts and will help prepare recipients for their jobs in high-need school districts. The term "high-need" means a local educational agency that serves an elementary or secondary school located in an area in which there is:
Based solely on the criterion of districts with at least
one school in which the percent of the students are eligible for participation
in the free and reduced lunch program is greater than the national average, 70%
of school districts in California are classified as high-need. A sample list of
California high-need districts is provided
Scholarship recipients are also expected to participate in monthly Noyce-related events with fellow CSUB Noyce Scholars to discuss and learn about issues related to science credentialing programs, science teaching, and teaching in a high-need school district. Noyce Scholars will also help organize, recruit, and run the Annual Noyce Narratives Campus Event.
The Robert Noyce Scholars program is prestigious and nationally recognized. In addition to financial scholarship support, monthly workshop, and building your resume, CSUB Noyce Scholars will benefit from the Noyce related activities and opportunities.
Scholarships will be awarded to students entering their junior year, senior year, or credential year at CSUB. Applicants should be majoring or have majored in a science, math, or engineering field and demonstrate aptitude in science coursework. Students with GPAs of 3.0 or higher are encouraged to apply.
There is no set deadline for applications. We continue to accept applications.
