CSU Dominguez Hills Provides Stipends for Math, Science Educators

California State University, Dominguez Hills, has been awarded a $750,000 grant from the National Science Foundation that will fund scholarships for science and math teachers-to-be, the university announced Thursday.

The grant will cover Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarships, which are designed to encourage math and science majors to become middle and high school teachers.

To be eligible, juniors and seniors majoring in biology, chemistry, math or physics must commit to earning their single- subject credential and agree to teach at a high-need school in Los Angeles Unified or Lynwood Unified school districts for four years.

Scholarship recipients will receive $10,000 stipends each year toward their degree completion. Both current Cal State Dominguez Hills students and upper division transfer students may apply.

For more information about the scholarships, call 310-243-2080.
