Abstract

This presentation attempts to examine the distinction between the educational and career aspirations among Noyce scholars at Texas A&M International University (TAMIU), Laredo, Texas. In addition, data collected throughout the last three years of the program will be reviewed together with the progress the scholars have made so far. Positive expectations on these matters together with scholarship experience will definitely lead to positive outcomes and the attitudes for them to succeed in becoming successful high school mathematics teachers. The investigation of these positive outcomes and attitudes from the scholars’ participation, through extensive research, is essential for the continued success and growth of the Noyce Program in progress.
