 Noyce Scholars Program Benefits

Wondering what you're going to do with that math or science degree? Are you looking for an exciting and rewarding career? If you're an upper division or transfer undergraduate student majoring in math or science, use your knowledge to change lives through the Noyce Scholars Program.

Our communities' urban schools have an urgent need for qualified, dedicated math and science teachers committed to seeing young students succeed. Let the Noyce Scholars Program put you on the path to becoming a life-changing teacher with:

Up to $20,000 in Scholarship Assistance

The Noyce Scholarship allows you to go to school fulltime so you can finish your degree -- and start teaching -- faster. With up to $20,000 in scholarship assistance toward two years of degree completion, the Noyce Scholars Program covers your tuition and books.

Hands-On Teaching Experience

Noyce Scholars gain valuable first-hand teaching experience in real-world urban classrooms as paid Teaching Assistants. You'll be paired with a teacher mentor to guide you through your first classroom experience.

Earn a Teaching Credential in One Year

Once you've completed the Noyce Scholars Program, you'll have the opportunity to complete your preliminary teaching credential in just one year through CSUDH's unique Transition To Teaching or STEM Teachers in Advanced Residency (STAR) programs.

As part of these accelerated credential programs, students earn stipends while completing teaching internships or residency at local schools, where they gain valuable hands-on teaching experience.

Personalized Advising

As a Noyce Scholar, you'll benefit from personalized academic advising, mentoring and monthly seminars from field experts throughout the remainder of your studies at CSUDH. Your advisor will work with you to create an individualized academic roadmap to becoming a teacher.

Job Placement Assistance

Through the Noyce Scholars Program, CSUDH has fostered strong partnerships with schools across the Los Angeles, Lynwood, Compton and Inglewood Unified School Districts. Our partnering schools actively seek graduates of the program. We also offer job placement assistance in these high-need schools, with an exceptionally high placement rate.

Complete the Circle

Many Noyce Scholars go on to teach math and science in high-need urban schools from their own communities--sometimes the very same schools they attended. The Noyce Scholars Program makes it possible for students to make a real difference in the lives of children from their own neighborhoods.
