Mathematics On Education based Integrated Understanding Scholars




Application Process












MOEBIUS (National Science Foundation grant under the Robert Noyce Scholarship Program; DUE-0934934) aims to encourage talented math majors and professionals to become middle and high school mathematics teachers.

The MOEBIUS project is combining an innovative curriculum with an effective support network to increase success of students interested in teaching careers by coupling the Three R's framework (Rigor, Relevance and Retention) developed for this project with the newly established Blended Mathematics Teacher Preparation Program at California State University, Los Angeles to improve the preparation and retention of students. The Blended program is preparing students in a considerably shorter time by combining requirements for the undergraduate degree in mathematics and those of the California Single Subject teaching credential. The Three R's framework is providing students with much needed support for future success via three professional development modules.

In addition, MOEBIUS is increasing the diversity of this highly qualified teacher workforce by effectively engaging, recruiting, training and placing students from this minority-serving institution.

MOEBIUS Program awards scholarships of $10,000 per year for a maximum of two years to eligible juniors, seniors, and graduate students at California State University, Los Angeles. The four application categories are:

  1. Transfer students in Math BA Blended option (Maximum $20,000 over 2 years)

  2.  Students in Credential program-Single Subject Math (Maximum $10,000 over 1 year)

  3. Students in Math MS/MA program & Credential program-Single Subject Math (Maximum $20,000 over 2 years)

  4.  Students in 4-yr Math BA Blended option (Maximum $20,000 over 2 years)

Dr. Debasree Raychaudhuri is the Director of this project. Dr. Derek Chang and Dr. Fred Uy are co-directors (respectively from dept of mathematics and education)

Who was Robert Noyce?
