The purpose of this study was to investigate the benefits and areas for improvement of the California State University, Long Beach Noyce Scholarship Program as reported by the participants. The Noyce Program offers a forgivable loan of $10,000 a year to support a qualified math or science teaching credential seeker. The sources of data for this qualitative methods study included documents, a questionnaire, observations, and interviews. The findings indicated that financial support, the non-financial support, and the community service were important benefits. Suggestions for program improvement included improving the communication between the Noyce Program managers and the school service site, personalize the seminars, and provide incentives to encourage more Scholars to attend the Noyce Conferences. Peer support, faculty mentoring, faculty out-of-class contacts, and school site experience were all instrumental in preparing these math and science teachers for the high need school setting.
