NOYCE Math and Science Scholarship

The California State University, San Bernardino Noyce Scholarship Program enhances secondary mathematics and science teaching in the San Bernardino City Unified School District (SBCUSD). The program recruits high achieving local students who are already connected to the community and familiar with the student population with whom they will be working. An average of 10 scholarships will be awarded each year, for a total of 40 scholarships.

Recruitment efforts target a diverse range of applicants, many of whom are from underrepresented groups. The program builds capacity by creating recruitment and support strategies that can be sustained beyond NSF funding. Recruitment vehicles are designed so that support and articulation activities are sustained within existing infrastructure and so that personnel are prepared to be involved in the recruitment process. The project creates a model community of well-prepared teachers that support each other and mentors new teachers as they are recruited. This model can be disseminated to add to the body of knowledge on best practices regarding recruitment, teacher preparation and retention.

Activities focus on three areas: recruitment, support and retention. New and enhanced recruitment strategies are integrated into existing infrastructure to facilitate sustainability. Ongoing support includes supervised classroom-based service experiences, extensive mentoring, regular professional development seminars and online peer learning communities.
