The CSUSM Noyce Teacher Scholars Program Description

The CSUSM Noyce Teacher Scholars program has four main objectives.

  1. To support a total of 38 Noyce Scholars over a 5-year period. These Scholars
    will be CSUSM Mathematics or Science majors, and single subject mathematics
    or science credential candidates.
  2. To develop and implement a STEM summer credential pathway that places
    students in paid internships during their credential year. As in the current
    credential program, this program will educate teacher candidates to use
    research-based effective practices to meet the needs of diverse learners
    and to develop deep understanding of the content.
  3. To provide early teaching experiences in Learn-by-Doing educational
    laboratories in order to attract greater interest in teaching as a viable
    and intriguing career path for undergraduate mathematics and science
    students. CSUSM Noyce Teacher Scholars will take a lead role in directing
    these activities.
  4. To retain CSUSM Noyce Teacher Scholars in underserved schools
    by providing early career teachers with support through a CSUSM Noyce
    Alumni networkand ongoing interactions with the Learn-by-Doing and CSUSM
    Learning Assistants centerpieces for this project.
