(A) a high percentage of individuals from families with incomes below the poverty line; 

(B) a high percentage of secondary school teachers not teaching in the content area in which they were trained to teach; or

(C) a high teacher turnover rate.

Scholarship recipients are expected to teach in a qualified K-12 school for two years for every year of support received. Noyce Scholars are responsible for ensuring that the school districts they are teaching in qualify as high needs under the National Science Foundation guidelines.
